Support the David B. Walker Award Fund today!

The David B. Walker Award Fund provides support to students in the Department of Public Policy's MPA program who exemplify a tireless commitment to public service.

This new endowment honors David B. Walker, former director of the U.S. Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations and director of UConn's MPA program, who passed away in 2013. Dave dedicated his career to mentoring and supporting future leaders to influence government and politics to improve our country.

Established with a generous donation from Parshar Patel '91 MPA, the David B. Walker Award helps to ensure that the Department of Public Policy can recognize individuals who demonstrate the passion and promise that Dave worked to instill in his students.

Please support the David B. Walker Award Fund today!

For more information please contact the UConn Foundation at (800) 269-9965 or (860) 486-5000.

    Dave Walker is the reason why I chose the UCONN MPA Program. For my advisory and my friend. May federalism live on forever.
