MASAE has established a scholarship program, which will provide professional development opportunities to our members and encourage involvement in the Mid-Atlantic Society of Association Executives (“MASAE”). The scholarship is generously sponsored by Bower Management Services, LLC.

MASAE is accepting applications from qualified members for the financial support of those selected members to further their professional education in the association industry.  The scholarship must be used to attend the MASAE Annual Conference.  Non-member applicants must include a letter of recommendation from a member. 

Criteria:

  • Any MASAE member in good standing is eligible to apply for the scholarship program.  In addition, non-members may apply provided they submit a letter of recommendation from a member. 
  • Applicants will be judged based on their involvement in MASAE along with an essay.  Extra consideration may be given to applicants that have been unable to attend the Annual Conference in the past.
  • Applications must be received by MASAE by November 10, 2017.
  • All members of the Scholarship Committee will review applications and selections will be made based on the points and personal statement of the applicant.
  • Scholarship funds will be used to defray costs for the recipient to attend the required conference for which the application is being submitted.  Failure to use the scholarship for the MASAE Conference & Exhibition will result in forfeiture of funds.  Unused funds will revert to the MASAE chapter scholarship fund.
  • Scholarship funds will be paid either directly by MASAE or reimbursed to recipient with proper documentation.
  • Costs above the amount of scholarship are the responsibility of the member.
  • Recipients will be required to write a short article for an MASAE publication covering the highlights of their experience.
