SMPS Seattle is accepting applications now through March 6, 2020 for the 2020 Fellows Scholarship to attend the SMPS Build Business Conference in Austin, Texas, valued at $2,500!

Attending the SMPS Build Business national conference contributed to the long-term success of our Chapter’s six Fellows:  Karleen Belmont, Victoria Cooper, Kenda Salisbury, Ted Sive, Bill Strong, and Carla Thompson. . Eager to share that experience, they worked with Seattle Chapter leaders to create the Fellows Scholarship, so that other SMPS Seattle members have access to the same opportunity. This generous $2,500 scholarship covers all major expenses* for one lucky SMPS Seattle member to attend Build Business in Austin, Texas from August 12–14, 2020.

  • All current SMPS Seattle members who have attended at least (2) Fellows Forums are eligible, with the exception of previous Fellows Scholarship winners from the past five years. Previous unsuccessful applicants are encouraged to apply again!
  • If an application is incomplete, or if it reveals the applicant’s identity, employer, or co-workers by name in Part II of the application process, it will be disqualified.

*Allowable reimbursable expenses up to $2,500 total are restricted to conference registration, a maximum of (4) nights hotel, airfare/travel, and transportation to and from the conference location. 

Applications are scored according to the following rubric:

Benefit to the applicant - 50 points

Positive impact to employer or future employer - 20 points

SMPS involvement - 20 points

Overall quality of submittal (persuasive, well written, personal)  -10 points)
