Regional Conference Scholarships

Accepting Applications Thru February 15

We have three scholarships available for the Northeastern Regional Conference. We will accept applications through Wednesday, February 15, 2023.

Purpose

URMIA offers three regional conferences, each in a different geographical area of North America, between February and April. These are one- to two-day events offering attendees a more relaxed setting for continuing education, networking, and professional development.

 

URMIA 2023 Regional Conference Series: Orlando, Anaheim, Boston

Regional conference scholarships are intended to assist URMIA institutional members who require financial assistance to attend. Recipients receive a complimentary conference registration and will be reimbursed for travel and lodging costs, up to a total of $500.

Applicants/nominees must meet the following criteria.

  • The individual must be listed as a current URMIA institutional member. If you are not sure about the 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.

Please note that recipients of a 2023 regional conference scholarship are not eligible to apply for a 2023 annual conference scholarship, but they may apply for an annual conference scholarship in a future year.
