IMFG is now accepting applications for two graduate fellowships being offered in 2013-14. The IMFG Graduate Fellowship and the Blanche and Sandy Van Ginkel Graduate Fellowship in Municipal Finance and Governance are each valued at $5,000. The deadline for applications is June 25, 2013. Students must be pursuing studies and/or research related to municipal finance or governance, and registered at a doctoral or master’s level on a full-time basis. Research in these areas must be part of the student’s graduate program. The holder of each award is required to do a presentation on his/her research at a seminar organized by the Institute on Municipal Finance and Governance.
There is one application process for both fellowships, with the top two candidates each awarded a fellowship. Award recipients will receive payment, paid in two equal installments, one in September and one in January. These fellowships may be held in conjunction with any other award.
