Traditional Scholarship Opportunities (Based on Available Funding)
Applicants MUST be a member of MPI in order to apply. A maximum of $2,500 USD will be awarded per scholarship.
Important: If you are applying for a scholarship for which there is a branded scholarship opportunity, please fill out the branded scholarship application. Traditional scholarships are only awarded (based on available funding) after branded opportunities are filled.
The following gives critical information for the three categories of scholarships available from MPI Foundation. Please use the MPI Foundation Scholarship Application for all three categories and indicate the category you are applying for on the application. If you have any questions or if we can help you further, please email Christine Perry at email@example.com.
CATEGORY I – Academic is money designated for college work towards undergraduate or graduate degrees and requires acceptance in a program of study.
Applications for this category are accepted throughout the year. Applications for these scholarships must be received a minimum of three (3) months early so as to meet your needed deadline. For example: If you are attending a winter semester, you must submit your application three (3) months minimum before you need to know if you received an award.
CATEGORY II - Professional Development is money designated for knowledge/education sought inside or outside the traditional academic institution. Examples of this education would be college courses for suppliers as well as planners, executive development programs, or industry-specific leadership programs like Certification in Meeting Planning (CMP) or MPI’s Certification in Meeting Management (CMM) program. If applying for the CMM, applicants must be pre-accepted into the program. Read About the CMM Program
If money is available, applications are accepted and processed quarterly. Application must be made a minimum of three (3) months early so as to meet your needed deadline. For example: If you are attending a fall program, you must submit your application three (3) months minimum before it is needed.
CATEGORY III – MPI Programs is money designated specifically for leadership, career and educational opportunities offered exclusively by MPI itself, and first-time attendance at MPI conferences.
If money is available, applications are processed quarterly. Application must be made a minimum of three (3) months early so as to meet your needed deadline. For example: If you are attending a winter program, you must submit your application three (3) months minimum before it is needed.
