The Board of Trustees of the New England State and Local Tax Forum (the Forum) is pleased to announce the launch of the 2017 Stanley R. Arnold Scholarship Fund (Scholarship) application process. This Scholarship honors Stanley R. Arnold, the Forum’s founder and former President, for his exemplary service to the state and local tax field over the last 30 years. In addition to celebrating Mr. Arnold’s decades of extraordinary service in both the government and private sectors, this Scholarship is intended to express appreciation for Stan’s personal commitment and contributions to promoting, encouraging, and enabling continuing education in the area of state and local taxation and tax policy.
Each year, the Scholarship will endow a one-time $5,000 award to a deserving full or part-time student enrolled in a qualifying tax program, who demonstrates a course of study in state tax and involvement in (or commitment to) the state tax field and who has worked (or is working) to improve relations between private and government sectors. A new recipient will be selected each year. This Scholarship is a fitting tribute to an esteemed leader who has made outstanding contributions – locally and nationally – to the state and local tax field over the last 30 years.
