2019 Rance R. Willis Planner Development NEC Scholarship
SGMP’s Gilmer Institute of Learning offers scholarships for planner members to attend the National Education Conference (NEC). Applications are now being accepted, and the deadline to apply is December 3, 2018, at 5 p.m. ET. We recommend reading the entire introduction to the application before submitting your application for best results.
- These scholarships are intended for planner members who would not be able to attend the NEC without financial assistance.
- Planners whose agency or chapter would otherwise provide full funding for them to attend are not eligible.
- Applications are evaluated on the volume of meeting planning experience, not on activity in SGMP.
- Applicants who have never attended the NEC will be given preference.
Applicants who have received a NEC Scholarship in the last three years may apply; however, preference will be given to first time applicants.
