The Scholarship Committee of the Wichita Property Tax Conference will be offering full scholarships to eligible applicants for attendance at the 2023 conference being held in Wichita, KS.
These scholarships will be offered first to individuals from state or government organizations and who can demonstrate that they will transfer the skills and knowledge acquired at the conference to the work they undertake in their organization. The scholarship is designed to defray the individual’s registration, hotel and travel expenses (other expenses i.e. food, taxi, car rental, incidentals, etc. are not covered).
Additional criteria will also assist in selection of the scholarship recipient, including an applicant’s financial need.
Scholarship recipients will be notified within 30 days of receipt of their application of approval or denial. In addition, recipients are expected to make their own travel arrangements and send the invoice for reimbursement to Melissa Donham (firstname.lastname@example.org), she will make lodging arrangements as soon as she receives your travel itinerary.
During the conference, materials received by CMD will be downloadable from this webpage or if you bring a flash drive, available for downloading at the registration table during the conference. Because many of the materials are not received until the day of the presentations, they may not be accessible until CMD receives them.
Materials from previous Conferences are available upon request.
A single presentation is $10, or $125 for the entire conference.
If the entire conference materials are purchased, they will be sent to you on a disc via the mail.
Materials archives are available from 1971 through 2022. Contact Melissa.Donham@wichita.edu to request materials.
