Annual Conference Scholarships

A Different Approach for 2020

The Annual Conference Committee is in the process of revamping the scholarship program for the 2020 Annual Conference now that it will be held in a virtual space. Once plans are finalized for the virtual conference, we'll update this page and solicit applications.


URMIA's Annual Conference Scholarship Program is designed to provide valuable educational and networking opportunities for higher education risk management professionals who could not attend the URMIA Annual Conference without this financial support.


These scholarships are intended for URMIA members who have not had the opportunity to attend any URMIA annual conference. Applicants must be responsible for risk management at their institution or work within a risk management department at a college or university. Preference will be given to applicants who have not attended any URMIA annual or regional conference. Recipients will be selected by URMIA member peers serving on the Annual Conference Scholarship Task Force.
