Applications will be accepted for scholarship funding support (registration, travel costs) to attend any local, regional or national park and recreation related educational training event. The goal of the scholarship program is to provide support to member professionals who have limited financial resources for training and have a desire to enhance their education. Awarded Scholarships will be based on the appropriateness of the educational opportunity related to the applicants’ job, financial need, contributions of the applicant to his/her community and to KRPA.
The Scholarship Committee will make all final decisions and determine the scholarship award total. There is no limit on the number of educational events that a member is eligible to apply for during the year, but priority will be given to individuals who have not received a previous scholarship. If chosen, receipts for reimbursements are due within 60 days of event.
Reimbursement Process: A typed summary and evaluation of the educational opportunity (no more than two pages) and a copy of a signed CEU form is required prior to reimbursement. The summary shall be submitted to the Scholarship Committee for review.
If you have any questions regarding any part of this nomination form, how to complete the form, or the requirements for its submission, please contact the KRPA office via email, email@example.com, subject: scholarship form
