Annual Conference Scholarships


URMIA's Annual Conference Scholarship Program is designed to provide educational opportunities for higher education risk management professionals who have not attended an URMIA annual conference. These scholarships are intended for URMIA members who are responsible for risk management at their institution or work within a risk management department at a college or university.

Five scholarships of up to a value of $1,600 each will be awarded to URMIA members who have not had the opportunity to attend an URMIA annual conference. These scholarships are not intended for individuals who have attended an URMIA annual conference recently. They can only be used to attend the next URMIA Annual Conference.

Reimbursement Process

Expenses that scholarship recipients incur to attend the conference will be reimbursed up to $1,600. Valid expenses include the following.

  • the conference registration fee
  • a maximum of four nights at the conference hotel
  • travel expenses to and from the conference

Reimbursements will be made in the order above. Receipts will be required. Please review URMIA's travel policy.

Application Period Is Closed

We are not accepting applications for Annual Conference scholarships at this time.

The application timeline for annual conference scholarships begins late spring and runs through early summer.
