PAFR Fellowship Program

GFOA has partnered with ELGL to create the PAFR Fellowship program to connect graduate students with local governments looking to create a Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) for submission to the GFOA award program.

About the PAFR Fellowship Program

This program matches graduate students with local governments, and then supports the students as they create a PAFR document. Local governments and students will complete an application to be considered for a match. Considerations like geographic location, organization size, and graduate student skills and abilities will be used to determine matches.

This program is "free" for local governments. Governments pay the regular $250 GFOA application fee for the PAFR program. GFOA then provides 100% of the fee to the graduate student as a stipend to produce the PAFR for the government.  At the end of the program, the PAFR is submitted to GFOA for award consideration.

Applications for the Summer 2022 Program are now closed.
