Conference Assistance Scholarships
ICMA’s Conference Assistance Scholarships are divided into three categories:
1. Young Professional Scholarship
2. Workplace Diversity Scholarship

Each is designed to help members experience all there is to experience at an ICMA Annual Conference! To be eligible for any of the scholarships, an applicant must:
- Be an ICMA member at the time of application.
- Be a first-time ICMA Annual Conference attendee (this requirement is not applicable to persons who attended a past conference as a student member).
- Be a full-time local government employee.
- Submit a completed online application (with essay).
- Demonstrate through an essay an avid interest in a career in local government management.

Stene Academic Scholarship Program
Each year, ICMA selects a graduate school student as the recipient of its $1,000 Edwin O. Stene Academic Scholarship, named in memory of Kansas University Professor Edwin O. Stene. ICMA also will provide the Stene scholarship recipient with complimentary registration to the 2017 annual conference. Travel and housing expenses are not included in the stipend.
An applicant must be enrolled by September 2016 as full-time graduate student specializing in local government at a college or university recognized by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Public Administration to be eligible to apply for the Stene Scholarship. An applicant must have had little or no full-time experience in local government, internships excluded.
