The City/County Management Fellowship offered through the Sol Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California was formed in 2006. The program unifies scholars and city leaders under the goals of building better cities and improving quality of life here and abroad.

“The USC City/County Management Fellowship (CMF) welcomes Tripepi Smith as a new Partner. Tripepi Smith’s expertise brings a unique development opportunity for our local government student fellows to gain insight into the increasingly important areas of Public Relations and Social Media,” noted Carl Alameda CMF Board President. “Additionally, Tripepi Smith will allow our CMF program to extend our reach with enhanced marketing resources and an increased ability to better tell our story through digital content and photography.”

Tripepi Smith will fulfill its sponsorship commitment through services related to photography, graphic design, website management and marketing strategy.

“Partnering with USC CMF is important to Tripepi Smith’s mission to support local government. One important way of doing this is through educating our future leaders, in this case, USC CMF students,” said President Ryder Todd Smith. “The Fellowship reinforces a cornerstone of Tripepi Smith’s values to always be learning and enables us to help invest in the next generation of public agency leadership.”


The City/County Management Fellowship, built upon 80 years of expertise in public administration at USC, was formed in 2006, and brings outstanding graduate students from around the world to the University of Southern California. Only a handful of elite Fellows are selected each year to receive financial, academic and professional support from prestigious faculty, staff and practitioners in the field of city and county management. The Fellowship is committed to building the future of city and county management in Southern California, across the U.S., and abroad.
