The Kansas Association of City/County Management (KACM) offers Rising Star scholarships to encourage people currently working in the public sector to advance their careers in city or county management in Kansas.
The Rising Star scholarship may be used for classes in a bachelor’s or master’s degree program, Certified Public Manager program, or other similar program applicable to preparing students for public management careers. KACM budgets $3,000 per year for this Rising Star Scholarship. Amounts to be awarded will depend on applications received. Applicants must (1) be recommended by a KACM member, (2) work in the public sector, and (3) show potential for advancement.
To apply, email your letter of interest (career aspirations and educational plan) with resume and letter of recommendation from a KACM member (prefer all three documents in one .pdf file) to Jonathan Mitchell, Hoisington City Manager and chair of the KACM Awards Committee, by March 26, 2020.
