2017 Mentorship Program
We are excited to announce our 2017 Mentorship Program. This program brings together people who are new to public participation and pairs them with an experienced mentor. This is a great opportunity to connect you with people who are not only passionate about what they do but also believe in passing knowlege on to those who are up and coming! Here are 3 reasons to be an IAP2 USA Mentee!
Why IAP2 USA?
Across the country student interest in IAP2 is growing—and it’s no wonder! Savvy students who used IAP2 to network, improve their skills, and land jobs are spreading the word like no other. Practitioners are some of the first to tell us they appreciate the energy and enthusiasm that student members bring to our organizations and that students and practitioners have much to learn from each other. There are tremendous benefits to student membership in IAP2 and this page will help you learn how to take full advantage of your student membership right away. Join us and connect with practitioners and students across the country who share your passion for P2.
IAP2 USA offers a number of exciting benefits to students at discounted rates, including:
Serve on an IAP2 USA standing committee (these meet monthly by teleconference) or volunteer with a local chapter
Serve on a conference planning committee, volunteer at a conference, or participate in conference poster sessions
Start a local SP2 group and grow the SP2 community on your campus

National IAP2 USA Student Scholarship Program
Supporting students encourages student membership, relationships with universities, research in the field, and the ongoing vitality and sustainability of IAP2 USA.
We hosted the first fundraiser to benefit USA Student Scholarships at the 2015 IAP2 North American Conference in Portland where over $1,900 was raised through a silent auction of items donated by chapters, businesses and generous attendees.
The first IAP2 USA National Scholarship will be awarded in 2017. Make your contribution today to expand the program to allow additional scholarships to be awarded this year or next! You do not need to have a PayPal account to make a donation.
Thank you for supporting this great cause!
