The CPMEF supports three scholarship programs for CPM students and graduates to participate in CPM training and continuing education. In addition, grants are available to CPM organizations for direct support of CPM educational programs and continuing education.
Wilkinson Scholarship: The Fran L. Wilkinson Scholarship was established by AACPM to provide for continuing education to a member of AACPM. The foundation agreed to fund this scholarship in partnership with AACPM.
Taylor Scholarship: The Phyllis Taylor Scholarship was established by the Oklahoma Society of Certified Public Managers to provide continuing education support. When the Oklahoma Society disbanded it donated funds to CPMEF to continue and administer this scholarship.
Lemons Scholarship: The Jack Lemons CPM Student Scholarship was established by CPMEF to support students enrolled in CPM programs that do not receive full agency support for training participation costs.
Awards: Applications from CPM
organizations to fund direct costs of CPM educational programs/events. Program Award Applications are evaluated
based on the number of CPM’s being served, the relevance of the
training/program to improving public service, and the amount of cofounding
provided by other sources
