In support of the Intern & Scholarship Programs, the EAMC instituted the 1st Annual Scholarship Raffle in 2004 to provide transportation, registration and hotel accommodations for interns, and registration for scholarship winners.
The EAMC Committee looks forward to sponsoring another unique and fun-filled Silent Auction and Raffle.
In 2003, the EAMC Board of Directors awarded its first internships to college students interested in the live event and entertainment industry. The internships provide the opportunity to attend the conference sessions and evening activities, assist committee members throughout the conference with registration and surveys, network with live entertainment executives and inquire about possible future job openings within the industry. Since 2003, 76 internships have been awarded to deserving students entering the live entertainment industry.
Due to the overwhelming support over the years with the Raffle & Silent Auction, EAMC is able to offer a Conference Scholarship for Industry Professionals. This Scholarship is different from a Conference Intern, 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 this year. Up to four Scholarship recipients are chosen based on financial need and have their registration fee covered by EAMC. Travel to the conference and hotel accommodations are the recipient's responsibility.
For those attending EAMC for the first time, the conference has a specific First Time Attendees session to start off the conference. This way, you can meet some other first-timers, and have a few familiar faces as the conference kicks off.
