The CUPA Forum Board (CFB) has been recipient to money designated for training or specifically for the annual CUPA Conference from a variety of enforcement cases. In most situations, court settlements specify conditions for the allocation of funds for training/conference costs and the CFB is restricted from distributions outside of the court's direction. A majority of the funds are allocated for use by Unified Program Agencies and are intended to train technical staff or assist in funding travel and expenses at the annual CUPA Conference.
Scholarship applications were due on or before November 30 with Manager approval, are available for CUPA and PA technical staff only, and cover the costs for registration fees. Independent contractors DO NOT qualify for scholarships.
Award notices are emailed to individuals and managers the 1st week of December. Scholarship recipients are required to provide an overall conference evaluation and individual session evaluations for each class attended.
