IFEA Foundation Legacy Scholarships

Scholarship Application Deadline:
5:00 PM MDT, Friday, May 15, 2020
The IFEA Foundation helps to support the mission and vision of the IFEA by providing financial support that allows the organization to fulfill its educational goals; goals which further ensure the quality of both the events and the professionals who make up our unique industry. Since its founding in 1993, the IFEA Foundation has provided scholarship assistance to over 200 deserving students, new professionals and financially challenged events, allowing them the opportunity to attend the annual IFEA Convention & Expo, regional training seminars and other special programs. Scholarship recipients are able to return home with new ideas, information and motivation to take their own events and careers, as well as our industry, to the next level.

Connecting Tomorrow's Professionals
Much of the financial support for the IFEA Foundation and, in turn, the IFEA, comes through the generous donations of our IFEA Members through Annual Giving Gifts, Special Fund-Raising Campaigns and our Annual Foundation Auction held each year at the IFEA Convention & Expo.

Over the years, selected individuals and/or groups of individuals have chosen to honor a professional peer for their outstanding dedication to our industry; to pay lasting tribute to a loved one or a professional colleague who has passed away; or to insure the continued professional growth of those serving our industry in their region of the world or professional niche of our industry through an IFEA Foundation Legacy Scholarship. It is a special way to connect tomorrow’s professionals with those who have paved the way for us all.

Each of the IFEA Foundation Legacy Scholarships below serve a selected audience(s) within our industry, as identified, by providing an annual scholarship to the IFEA Annual Convention & Expo (registration only) or other designated programs. We invite you to look through the opportunities, take a moment to learn a little more about the special individuals and groups attached to each, and apply for those that you may qualify for. The scholarship names below also serve as a link to the appropriate application form for each.
