The Annual Conference is an incomparable opportunity for professional growth, and we want all GFOA members to have the chance to attend. For that reason, GFOA’s Executive Board implemented the First-Time Annual Conference Attendee Scholarship program. The scholarship has enabled more than 3,500 GFOA members to attend their first Annual Conference.The scholarship covers the full conference registration fee. All scholarship recipients are responsible for their travel and lodging. The scholarship does not include registration for preconference seminars.50 scholarships per state/province are awarded on a rolling basis. Applicants will be notified of their status (recipient, ineligible, etc.) within a week of submission.
