Merit Professional Learning Scholarship Program

Scholarships are made possible thanks to the Merit Community Supporter Program

Merit Professional Learning Scholarship Program

Through the funding of the Merit Community Supporter Program, Merit offers scholarships to partially or fully cover registration fees of Professional Learning events for Merit Member attendees who would otherwise be unable to attend. Scholarships may also cover some travel costs for specified events. The primary goal of the scholarship program is to help Merit Member organizations maintain strong information technology skills despite funding limitations. Applications require a statement of the applicant's interest in attending the event, as well as a statement describing the organization's need for scholarship funding.

Scholarships may be requested for any Merit Professional Learning event that has a registration fee. The web page for each event includes a link to an online form for submitting an application. Applicants who receive scholarships receive a registration discount for the amount of the scholarship. Travel funds, if awarded, are provided by reimbursement.

Scholarship applications are due by a specified date approximately four weeks before each event. Applications will be reviewed as soon as possible after the deadline, and the committee will notify all applicants of their status. Scholarship applications are treated as confidential, and the identity of applicants are not disclosed by Merit without written permission.

Merit invites all Merit Member organizations to participate in the scholarship program any time funding is not available to allow a staff member to participate in a Merit Professional Learning event.

If you have any questions or need assistance regarding this program, please send email to or contact your Member Relations manager.
