ASAE-USAE Travel Scholarship


The ASAE-USAE Travel Scholarship provides funding to association professionals to attend select ASAE educational programs. This scholarship program supports members who are committed to advancing their knowledge, network, and career development in association management, who would otherwise not be able to attend learning events due to a variety of organizational budgetary constraints. Award recipients may work in different industries, functional areas, and size organizations. Funds, awarded annually, are intended to cover travel costs and other incidental expenses to the 2022 ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition. The award also includes complimentary registration to the 2022 ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition and two additional ASAE in-person educational programs.
