The PMI Eastern Iowa Chapter has sponsored an endowed academic scholarship fund to provide an annual scholarship valued at up to $1,000 for undergraduate and graduate students. Applicants must be enrolled in or applying for an accredited academic degree program in project management or a related field benefiting from project management. Priority is given to children (or a stepchild) of a member of the PMI Eastern Iowa Chapter and residents of the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids or Eastern Iowa area attending or planning to attend any accredited college or university. Individuals planning to attend degree programs in the states of Iowa, Missouri, Illinois are also welcome to apply.
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.
