I’ve just been informed that I am this year’s recipient of the Government Finance Officers Association George A. Nielsen Public Investor Scholarship to go toward my studies at North Carolina State University.
“The Public Investor Scholarship is awarded to an employee of a local government or other public entity who is enrolled or plans to enroll in an undergraduate or graduate program in public administration, finance, business administration, or related field. The purpose of the Public Investor Scholarship is to support the studies of full- or part-time undergraduate or graduate students with career interests in the efficient and productive investment of public funds. “
The prize includes an all expenses paid trip to Anaheim, California to the GFOA’s annual conference in June.
