Scholarship Information

WAMCAT awards scholarships each year for attendance at workshops and conferences.  In order to be eligible for a scholarship, the following criteria must be met:

  • Applicants must be an active WAMCAT member.
  • WAMCAT dues must be paid in full for the year in which the scholarship is requested.
  • Applicants must have attended at least one (1) WAMCAT workshop within the past year.

  • A copy of the City/Town current budget containing funds allocated for the applicant’s travel and training may be requested.
  • Applications must be received by the Scholarship Chair to be presented to the Board at least thirty days prior to the requested course.
  • The scholarship funding program attempts to financially assist as many applicants as possible; therefore, no scholarship will be awarded in excess of $500.
  • Consecutively awarded scholarships may be reduced in order to encourage municipalities to budget for education and conferences for their own employees and to further maximize participation in the Institute programs.
  • Consideration will be given to applicants working toward initial CMC, CPFA or GFOA certification and college, continuing education and correspondence courses affiliated with educational advancement of a member’s area(s) of job responsibilities for their municipality.
