The Boston Chapter will annually award up to five (5) paid scholarships to reimburse an individual for the fees involved in taking the AGA CGFM exam.

The individuals will also be reimbursed for the CGFM application fee if they successfully pass part one on the first attempt.

CGFM Preparation Material and Examination Reimbursement Policy

The Association of Government Accountants (AGA) Boston Chapter is proud to support our members in obtaining their Certified Government Financial Manager® (CGFM) designation.

Active association members (members with current dues paid) will be reimbursed the cost of either training modules, study guides, or practice exams as well as examination fees for each of the three (3) sections of the exam up to a maximum total of $500 per association member. There is a limited amount of reimbursements to cover up to five individuals, which is available on a first come, first served basis until the five slots for the program are filled or funds for the program year are exhausted. (Members do not qualify if your employer has reimbursed you for such expenses.)
