The Municipal Clerks Education Foundation (MCEF) was created in 1984 to raise funds for IIMC. These funds are used to promote, train and educate Municipal Clerks to make them proficient in the services they provide for the citizens of their community. One of the many ways MCEF helps IIMC members is through education scholarships and grant programs.

What Kind of Assistance is Available??
MCEF and IIMC offer 4 type of financial assistance:

IIMC Region Meeting Stipend
The Region Meeting Stipend is designed to make the planning of an IIMC Region Meeting financially feasible by providing financial assistance to embellish the Region's annual education program.

Each IIMC Region will decide for themselves how best to use the money toward education at their Annual Region Meeting. The amount will fluctuate each year depending on MCEF’s annual donation to IIMC. In 2016 the amount will be $1,000 per IIMC Region!

Please note that this is not an individual state grant but rather a grant that will assist with expenses for one education program offered to all states in that region at once. 

Not sure what Region you are in. Take a look here!

The 2016 IIMC Region Stipend Applications are now being accepted! Applications will be accepted throughout 2016 but the stipend must be used for a program that takes place in 2016.
