Regional Conference Scholarships

Purpose

URMIA offers four regional conferences, each in a different geographical area of North America, between February and May. These are one- to two-day events offering attendees a more intimate setting for continuing education, networking and professional development.

Regional conference scholarships are intended to assist URMIA institutional members who require financial assistance for conference registration, plus travel and lodging costs, up to a total of $500.
