This year Texas PRIMA is offering two types of conference scholarships, our Annual Scholarship and our COVID-19 Assistance Scholarship.

The Texas PRIMA Conference Scholarship Program is designed to assist public entity professionals whose entity could not otherwise afford to pay the cost of attending Texas PRIMA's annual conference.  Watch this video to see how the Texas PRIMA Scholarship changed one recipient's career!
