The International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR), a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to providing resources and advocacy for public human resource professionals at all levels, provides graduate fellowships to members seeking graduate degrees and college scholarships to the children of members seeking undergraduate degrees.

This year, the children of two members of IPMA-HR (Allison Sturges, the daughter of Lynda S. von Bargen, IPMA-CP, and Jeremy D. Harvancik, the son of Ann M. Harvancik) were selected to receive IPMA-HR scholarships.

Harvancik, of Pewaukee, Wis., is a student at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wis., and plans to finish his B.A. with an emphasis in graphic design within the next two years. Ultimately, Harvancik hopes to manage a small business of his own.

Sturges, of Brookeville, Md., is majoring in sociology with a minor in business at Virginia Tech. Upon graduation, she hopes to continue her education either in law school to study criminal law and later become a prosecuting attorney or in graduate school for further studies in social work.

The association provides a maximum of two $1,000 non-renewable scholarships per year to the children of IPMA-HR members seeking undergraduate degrees. Preference is given to students pursuing human resources or public administration degrees. A parent or legal guardian of a student applying for the scholarship must be a current IPMA-HR member and have maintained membership for the previous three years.

IPMA-HR is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to providing resources and advocacy for public human resource professionals at all levels. Comprised of four regions and more than 50 chapters, IPMA-HR represents more than 9,000 individuals and 1,300 agencies in local, state and federal levels of government worldwide. IPMA-HR provides a focus and forum for the discussion and exchange of views and best practices among public sector human resource professionals throughout the United States and abroad.
