2024 CSMFO Annual Conference

Scholarship Opportunities

Learn about two scholarship opportunities at this year’s 2024 Conference!

Do you only have funding for one staff member to attend the conference but want others to have the experience?  Do you have staff that have not yet joined CSMFO or attended a conference, and you’d like to see them join and participate?  

Are you a current college student interested in the government finance sector or special districts finance?  

If so, we would like for you or your staff to join us at the 2024 Annual Conference at Disneyland!

CSMFO’s Board of Directors has set aside funds for scholarships for first time attendees and students. Criteria must be met to qualify for the scholarships, which will cover your conference registration fee.

Please note that the scholarships do not cover the pre-conference Tuesday sessions or the Wednesday Night Event in Disneyland.  If you are interested in pre-conference sessions or the Wednesday Night Event in Disneyland, you will need to register separately for those events and pay the respective fees.

Additional travel expenses for the conference, such as flights, parking, or lodging costs, will be your responsibility and are not reimbursed by CSMFO.

Qualification information:

Student Scholarship (in-person conference)
