Each year, the Chapter Presidents’ Council grants scholarship awards to individual members of chapters or affiliates that are in the CPC.  A Chapter/Affiliate Scholarship is also awarded.   This year the CPC will award up to $6,300 in individual scholarship funds. Maximum scholarship amount per individual will be $1,500.  GBTA has generously extended the early bird deadline for Convention Registration to June 15th for any scholarship recipient.

The Fine Print:

  • Scholarship is valid for one (1) year from date of award
  • A member can only win a scholarship once every 2 years
  • Scholarships cannot be used for any competitor events (i.e. ACTE)
  • Scholarships will be reimbursed once the educational event has been paid for. Proper receipts for the event must accompany a GBTA expense report which must be submitted to Robert McKay at rmckay@carlsonwagonlit.com. Once approved, the expense report will forwarded to the CPC Leadership for reimbursement from GBTA.
