EAMC Scholarships for Industry Professionals
Due to the overwhelming support over the years with the Silent Auction & Raffle, EAMC is now able to offer a Scholarship for Industry Professionals. This scholarship is different from the College Internship, as this opportunity is open to attendees who work in the industry and have never attended the conference or have attended in the past, but for financial reasons would not be able to attend. Up to four scholarship recipients are chosen based on financial need. The recipients’ registration fees and three night hotel accommodations will be covered by EAMC.
Scholarships will include all EAMC registration fees and hotel accommodations for three nights. Travel is the recipient’s responsibility.
All applicants must meet the following requirements:
- Applicants must be a full-time employee in the event & arena marketing industry.
- Applicants must be a first time attendee or returning attendee who would not be able to attend due to financial difficulty.
Applications will be judged by the EAMC Scholarship Committee on the following:
- Letter of recommendation from Supervisor
- Personal Essay
- Special consideration will be given to EAMC Planning Committee members or anyone that has significantly contributed to the conference in the past.
NOTE: In return for expenses paid, Scholarship recipients may be asked to assist EAMC Planning Committee members throughout the conference if the need arises.
Deadline for 2018 applications has been extended to March 30, 2018.
