August 15, 2019

Thirty-five daughters, sons, and wives of fallen public employees will receive ICMA-RC Public Employee Memorial Scholarships for the 2019-2020 academic year. The recipients listed below will be awarded nearly $65,000 and will join more than 300 students who have received scholarships since the program was established in 2001.

"We are proud to present scholarships to this year's talented and deserving students," said ICMA-RC President and CEO Bob Schultze, who also serves as President of the ICMA-RC Public Employee Memorial Scholarship Fund.  "The scholarships honor the memory of public employees who made the ultimate sacrifice serving their communities and help their loved ones pursue academic success."

Recipients are selected based on qualifications including financial need, academic success, leadership in school and community activities, honors received, and work experience. Individuals who apply must be the surviving child or spouse of a public employee who died in the line of duty. Students may choose to study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university or post-secondary vocational or technical school.
