The PMI Kansas City Mid-America Chapter has sponsored an academic scholarship for students from Kansas City, MO, pursuing associate, undergraduate, graduate, or PhD degrees in Project Management or related fields of study from accredited, degree-granting colleges and universities. Students from Kansas and Missouri are also invited to apply. Undergraduate students must be enrolled and classified by the university as full-time students, while graduate students can also be enrolled part-time. The student is not required to be a PMI member.
All completed applications accompanied by all required supporting materials will be evaluated the PMI volunteer reviewers. Applicants will be scored using a point system based on the quality of the content of the essay, the student’s academic performance, review of letters of recommendation and the alignment of a candidate’s coursework to the field of project management. All decisions by the review committee are final and any attempts by applicants to lobby or persuade the committee during the process will result in immediate disqualification.
