NIGP Scholarship Fund

Every single day, with every effort we make at NIGP our focus is on our mission, to develop, support and promote our members and the work that you do. The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a brighter light on that work, and how important it is for the smooth functioning of all the communities and entities you serve. Whether that’s a  small township or a major metro area, a school system or a hospital network and the many other entities that provide all the vital services to keeping us all healthy, safe and able to cope with the vast challenges we are facing.

Sourcewell has been a great partner and continuing supporter of NIGP’s mission and a champion of the work that we do on behalf of our members and the profession at large. 

We are immensely grateful for their generous financial support of $200,000. This fund will ensure our organization continues to provide the learning and development opportunities that enable our members to be more effective in the work that you do.

How it works

Sourcewell will send the funds directly to NIGP.  These funds will be used at the sole discretion of NIGP and will focus on maximizing learning and development opportunities among public procurement professionals.

Thanks to the generous support of
