About the National PELRA Foundation

The NPELRA Foundation is a nonprofit subsidiary of the National Public Employer Labor Relations Association (NPELRA). The Foundation provides scholarships to deserving graduate students and working professionals engaged in the field of labor and employee relations and who have an interest in or are working in the public sector. The Foundation seeks to provide worthy graduate students and working professionals engaged in public sector labor and employee relations with financial assistance.

Established without an endowment, the Foundation primarily relies on contributions from National PELRA members for funding. Once sufficient funds are available, universities and colleges with schools offering degrees in human resources management and/or labor and employee relations will be informed of the availability of the Foundation's Anthony C. "Tony" Russo Scholarships. Scholarship recipients are selected on an objective and nondiscriminatory basis. The Foundation seeks your support and contributions to accomplish this mission and contribute to the success of the next generation of labor relations professionals.
