The Meier PMRC Travel Inclusion Award

The Meier PMRC Travel Inclusion Awards supports PhD students from underserved populations in the U.S. to attend the annual Public Management Research Conference. PMRA is able tomake this award thanks to a generous fund endowment by Professor Kenneth J. Meier, Distinguished Scholar in Residence, School of Public Affairs, American University.

The board is extremely grateful for Professor Meier’s exceptional support. We believe that these awards represent an important and significant contribution to public management scholarship.

Thank you, Professor Meier!


The 2021 Public Management Research Conference will be entirely virtual and, consequently, no Meier award will be given this year.

The call for applications will be announced in advance of the 2022 Public Management Research Conference. Please watch for those details as well as details on how PMRA members can contribute to the Meier Awards fund.
