Scholarships

Small Cities Scholarship Program

The Small City Scholarship program assists small cities and towns that need financial assistance to attend AWC events. To be eligible, a city or town must have a population of 5,000 or less and have a financial need. The scholarship covers the cost of registration only. Scholarships are limited to one per city, per event, with up to four per city, per year and are based on available funds. AWC reserves the right to limit the number of scholarship used on a single event.

It is easy to access a small city scholarship. Simply click on that option when you register electronically for the workshop. If you are registering through AWC's new registration system, you will need the appropriate campaign code (see individual registration page for information.) If you register using a scholarship and do not attend, the city will be charged the cancellation fee.

Denial of a scholarship may be due to various reasons such as significant demand for a particular workshop, lack of scholarship funds, and/or multiple scholarships provided to a particular jurisdiction.
