Georgia City-County Management Association

The Georgia City-County Management Association (GCCMA) has established and sponsors the Harold F. Holtz Jr. M.P.A. Scholarship Program.  The program awards up to three scholarships to qualified students interested in pursuing a career in local government in Georgia.  The maximum amount of each scholarship is $1500 for two academic semesters (i.e., $572.50 per semester) plus $355 for a summer session or to be applied to the next semester.  The student must attend a university within the University System of Georgia.  "Persons who do not wish to consider a career in local government, who cannot articulate what appeals to them about local government service, or whose graduate course preparation will not include instruction on the forms, function and policy processes of local government, should not consider applying for a GCCMA scholarship."

Obtain application forms and information from Dr. Friedman.  Questions may be referred to Ty Ross, city administrator of Dalton, at (706) 278-9500 or Janice Eidson at (678) 686-6256 or .  The deadline for applications is October 1, 2012.  (Source of information:  letter dated August 6, 2012.)
