2019 Fall Institute Scholarship Application

Published May 31, 2019

The Michigan Government Finance Officers Association has a scholarship program available to members in good standing seeking financial aid to attend the Annual Fall Institute.  Scholarship awards of up to $500 are provided to help defray the cost of travel and registration.  Recipients are required to cover all travel expenses up front.  After the Fall Institute, recipients will submit a reimbursement request documenting transportation and hotel expenses.  The total amount of reimbursement is limited to the scholarship award less the cost of registration to the Fall Institute.

In considering the scholarship award, preference will be given to applicants who:

  1. Have not previously received a scholarship from the MGFOA;
  2. Have not attended the Fall Institute in the past three years;
  3. Are financially unable to attend due to budget reductions, or other financial factors;
  4. Are likely to continue their participation in MGFOA after the scholarship has been awarded.

It is not necessary for an applicant to meet all four criteria.  The MGFOA Board of Directors will award scholarships to individuals that best meet these criteria.  The Board reserves the right to recruit applicants, without promise of an award, who may satisfy these criteria.

Please submit your application by July 5, 2019 to the Executive Director at
or fax to 231-947-2532.
