Annual Scholarships (due Sept. 21, 2018):
Our annual scholarships offer conference attendance scholarships.
WAFSCM is pleased to announce that they awarded scholarships for attendance at the 2018 Wisconsin Association for Floodplain, Stormwater and Coastal Management’s 16th Annual Conference, November 7-9, 2018 in Pewaukee. Any current member of WAFSCM or non-member local government official is eligible to apply for a scholarship to attend the annual 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 included the registration (including a workshop, Wednesday reception, full-day Thursday conference, and Friday field tour) and lodging for the two evenings. 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.)
There are also scholarships available for current students to attend the full‐day conference on Thursday, November 8th. A student scholarship includes registration, break refreshments and lunch.
Lodging, travel costs or other expenses are not included.
The WAFSCM Scholarship Application Form should be completed and submitted by Friday, September 21, 2018. 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!
