Purpose

The Regional Conference Scholarship Program empowers URMIA institutional members who require financial assistance to attend a regional conference. Assistance includes conference registration, as well as travel and lodging costs, up to a total of $500 per recipient.

Eligibility

Applicants/nominees must meet the following criteria.

  • The individual must be an URMIA institutional member. If you are unsure about an individual’s membership status, check the Member Directory or contact the National Office.

  • The applicant/nominee has not attended an URMIA conference in person.

  • The individual’s job title and responsibilities are directly related to higher education risk management and/or insurance.

  • The individual must demonstrate how they will directly benefit from this educational opportunity.

  • The individual’s direct supervisor must support this opportunity.

Awards

URMIA will award five regional conference scholarships with a maximum value of $500 each. The scholarship will be applied to the individual’s registration fee; other valid hotel and travel expenses will be reimbursed after receipts are submitted.

Recipients will be selected by the members of the conference planning committees. Award winners will be notified in February.

Recipients of a 2022 regional conference scholarship are not eligible to apply for a 2022 annual conference scholarship, but they may apply for an annual conference scholarship in a future year.
