    Scholarship Information

    The Colorado Municipal Clerks Association generously provides funding opportunities to defray the costs to it members for Clerk Education. The CMCA Scholarship Committee is responsible for awarding the scholarships.

    • Applicants must be a member of CMCA by March 31 of the current year.
    • The scholarship funding program attempts to assist financially as many applicants as possible, therefore no full scholarships will be awarded. This guideline assumes continued numerous applications and limited funding.
    • Consecutively awarded scholarships may be reduced in order to encourage municipalities to budget for the education/conference for their own clerks and to further maximize participation in the Institute program.
    • Scholarship awards will be for actual education/conference expenses only. 
    • Municipal Clerks and those Deputy Clerks fulfilling the functions and bearing the responsibility of the Municipal Clerk as certified by the Municipal Clerk shall receive first priority in consideration of scholarship awards, after which applications for Deputy Clerks shall be considered.

    Scholarships are available for the Colorado Municipal Clerks Institute each July, as well as the CMCA Annual Confernece in October.

    Additionally, the Scholarship Committee is responsible for awarding one fully paid scholarship, followed by partial scholarships, for 3rd-year students to the Colorado Municipal Clerks Institute annually from the Jean L. Rogers Scholarship Fund.

    Scholarships will also be available from the Mary Watt Scholarship Fund to pay for one attendee at a Professional Development Outreach (“PDO”) course.  PDO attendees will fill out the scholarship form when they arrive for class.  A name will be drawn during the training.  The lucky person chosen will be the Mary Watt Scholarship winner.  The winner will receive $25 payable to their municipality in the following weeks to help defray the costs of attending the class.

    Scholarships may also be available from CIRSA, CML and CGFOA for attendance at various conferences and trainings:
