2015 NCLGBA Conference Scholarship Program
Application Deadline May 4th
What motivates you to be a local government budget professional?
NCLGBA events are a great opportunity to enhance professional skills and network with hundreds of your colleagues. Whatever motivates you to slog through budget requests and re-add numbers that don’t add up, twice a year we gather to share, compare notes and learn from each other. And — to welcome new budgeteers!
The NCLGBA board is excited to extend financial support, to go along with that offer of welcome, through the 2015 NCLGBA Conference Scholarship Program. First-time conference attendees — whether current Masters’ of Public Administration or Public Policy students, interns or otherwise new to our field — can apply for a scholarship to join us in education, networking and advocacy. The scholarship provides conference registration and two nights hotel stay to attend the upcoming summer conference July 8-10, 2015 at Shell Island Resort or our winter conference in December 2015.
We ask applicants about their motivation for becoming (or studying to become) a local government budget professional and about how we, as budget professionals, can each impact the community. Please pass along the attached application to the new person in your office, the interns, or MPA/MPP students who may be interested in this scholarship opportunity. Encourage them to participate in the NCLGBA, and to consider what motivates them as they enter our field and share what motivates you.
The deadline for applications is Monday, May 4, 2015. The winner will be announced May 13.
Please send completed applications to Heather Drennan, firstname.lastname@example.org. Any
