Montana Floodplain Management Conference Scholarship(s)

The Association of Montana Floodplain Managers (AMFM) is focused on providing local floodplain administrators with knowledge and skills to do their jobs and in promoting professional growth.  For over a decade, AMFM has been the host of the annual statewide floodplain management conference.  The conference is primary to delivery of training, education and networking opportunities.

AMFM's Board has approved the granting of a maximum of scholarship(s) for attendance at the 2019 annual conference to ensure that local floodplain managers have a chance to develop and grow their professional expertise.  

Scholarships cover the cost of one (1) conference registration and an AMFM membership, valid for the 2019-2020 year. 

Scholarships will NOT be awarded to Federal or State Agency representative or a private sector consultant.  Repeat scholarship applicants will have a lower priority in selection than first time (applicant or community) applicants. 

Scholarship recipients will be asked to work a short volunteer shift, during the conference and write an article for the 2019 Fall/Winter Newsletter in order to help maximize their interactions with fellow AMFM members. By attending the conference, participants will earn 12 continuing education units (CEUs).
