Peter Brinckerhoff, an internationally renowned trainer, author, and consultant to not-for-profit organizations established the Corporate Alternatives, Inc. Scholarship to benefit current employees of not-for-profit organizations. His books are used as texts at over 60 colleges and universities worldwide. Since founding Corporate Alternatives, Inc. in 1982, Mr. Brinckerhoff has helped thousands of organizations become more mission-capable. The scholarship will match (up to $500.00 per semester) employer education contributions for graduate students in Business or Public Administration programs.
An enthusiastic and vibrant presence on the UIS campus, the late Dr. Lee Frost-Kumpf was an associate professor of Political Studies who championed public policy issues in any way he could. He received the Spencer Award for public service in 2003, only months before his death. Dr. Frost-Kumpf’s work included research projects in Springfield, India, New Zealand, Norway and the Ukraine. The Lee Frost-Kumpf Scholarship was established in 2003 to honor his memory. Applicants must be pursuing a master’s degree in political studies or public administration.
Nelson Howarth was a respected Springfield attorney and three-term mayor who was instrumental in convincing the Illinois General Assembly to establish the UIS (then Sangamon State University) campus in 1969. He later taught a course in municipal law and administration at SSU. The Mary and Nelson Howarth Memorial Scholarship was originally established by the family and friends in honor of his life and work. In later years, his wife’s name was added by the family, who continue to support the scholarship through generous donations. Applicants for the scholarship must be in good academic standing with a major in Public Administration, Public Affairs Reporting, Environmental Studies, Political Science or History.
