Annual Scholarships (due September 18, 2017):
Our annual scholarships offer conference attendance scholarships.
WAFSCM is pleased to announce that they will be awarding scholarships for attendance at the 2017 Wisconsin Association for Floodplain, Stormwater and Coastal Management’s 15th Annual Conference, October 25-27, 2017, in Wisconsin Dells. Any current member of WAFSCM or non-member local government official is eligible to apply for a scholarship to attend the 2017 conference. This is a great opportunity to interact, exchange ideas, make contacts, form partnerships and prepare for an improved and sustainable future for flood damage reduction. The scholarships will include the registration (including a workshop, Wednesday reception, full-day Thursday conference, and Friday field tour) and lodging for October 25th and 26th. The scholarship recipients will be responsible for their own travel and per diem costs, and any hotel costs in excess of the conference hotel rates.
Criteria that may be considered in selection of scholarship recipients include:
• Whether the applicant is a Certified Floodplain Manager
• Past participation in the Wisconsin Association for Floodplain, Stormwater and Coastal Management
• Commitment to participate in WAFSCM activities (committees, conference, workshops, etc.)
• Other criteria to be determined.
The attached WAFSCM Scholarship Application Form should be completed and submitted by Monday, September 18, 2017. If selected to receive a scholarship, you will be required to write an article for the next WAFSCM newsletter Water Matters about your experiences attending the conference, or another appropriate subject matter relating to floodplain, stormwater or coastal management. Local government officials or representatives are strongly encouraged to apply!
