Marvin Andrews Fellows (Marvins) receive the knowledge, training, and necessary experience to become future city/county managers in local government.
Students enrolling in core courses must demonstrate minimum competency in statistics and American government. Courses taken to fulfill the competency do not count toward the 42-hour degree program.
Competency in statistics is met with a grade of B or higher in approved courses (PAF 301, POS 401, PSY 230, QBA 221, SOC 390) within the past two years or passing a diagnostic test approved by the MPA Committee. Other courses taken within the last two years may be substituted upon approval of the MPA Director.
Competency in American government is a demonstrated understanding of American government institutions and processes. Students may be required to take an undergraduate class in American government (PAF 300,PAF 340, POS 110, POS 310).
Applicants to the Marvin Andrews Fellowship program are accepted once a year for admission to begin each Fall. Admission is very competitive. The program, which will lead to the Master's of Public Administration degree, will admit up to four students each year, based on a search process designed to identify the country’s most talented students aspiring to executive levels in local government.
All applicants must submit two applications: an ASU Graduate College application and an Andrews Fellowship application. You must be accepted into the ASU Graduate College to be considered for the Andrews Fellowship.
