Announcing the Frederickson Fellowship for Doctoral Students

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

The School of Public Affairs and Administration is pleased to announce the initiation of the Frederickson Fellowship, a new funding opportunity for doctoral applicants.

The Fellowship honors the legacy of H. George Frederickson, a pioneer in the field of public administration. In his 26 years with the University of Kansas, George has served as scholar, teacher, advisor, mentor, writer, editor and intellectual leader. He is the founder of the Public Management Research Association (PMRA) and the Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory (JPART), which he edited for 21 years. The PMRA Lifetime Achievement award for public administration scholarship is the Frederickson Award.

Over a career spanning 45 years, George has authored and edited 18 books on subjects such as Social Equity and Public Accountability. His books have been translated into five languages.

George earned the Edwin O. Stene Distinguished Professorship in 1987, and in 2013, retired as the Distinguished Professor Emeritus. He continues to mentor students and faculty, and is currently working on his nineteenth book.

The Frederickson Fellowship will provide a generous research and teaching assistantship to one doctoral student admitted to the School of Public Affairs and Administration’s program each January. The award will be based on the research statement submitted as part of the student’s application. The award will include tuition, fees, an annual stipend of $20,000, along with the opportunity to work with senior faculty in the School of Public Affairs and Administration.

The first Frederickson Fellowship will be awarded in 2014.

KU’s School of Public Affairs and Administration maintains a small, focused doctoral program in public administration, giving students the opportunity to interact and collaborate regularly with faculty. Students have the opportunity to specialize in public administration theory, public management and organizational theory, urban policy and administration, human resources management, sustainability, and law and public management. Recent graduates have attained professorships at the University of Alabama, American University, Arizona State, Florida State, George Mason, Indiana and North Carolina. International graduates have attained positions in Columbia, the Royal Thai Government and Wayne State.
