The California City Management Foundation (CCMF) launched the Judy L. Kelsey Memorial Fund award program in Summer 2020. Each program year, CCMF will grant an award of five thousand dollars ($5,000) each to two (2) California cities/towns to enable summer internships.

Entries are limited to one per City/Town. CCMF will aim to announce the winners by the end of May 2024. A committee from the CCMF Board of Trustees will review applications and determine the two winners based on, but not limited to, these criteria:

  • Perceived socioeconomic need for an internship
  • Strength of short answer response, particularly the anticipated impact of the work
  • Applicant’s agreement to provide a report and proof of how funds were spent

The application deadline is May 3, 2024.

CCMF will distribute award funds to winners as reimbursement following completion of their internship program and submission of proof of award usage.
