CAMMP Conference Scholarship Program
The annual CAMMP conference is one of the highlights of the year for members of our organization. It provides invaluable opportunities to network with fellow CAMMP members as well as dozens of vendors who sponsor the conference costs. However, in recent years many potential conference attendees – as well as conference veterans – have encountered budgetary and/or supervisor approval barriers that have prevented them from attending the annual CAMMP conference.
To address these barriers, a CAMMP conference scholarship program has been created. The CAMMP Board of Directors will select two recipients that will receive funds to cover travel and lodging expenses at the 2019 conference in Austin, TX.
To be considered for a conference scholarship, please complete the CAMMP conference scholarship application.
>>View the scholarship application questions
The application period will close on March 31 and recipients will be selected and contacted on or around April 1. Announcement of recipients will be made after April 15.
For the 2019 CAMMP Conference in Austin, TX, scholarships will be capped at $1,000 for eligible travel expenses.
