PMI OVOC 30th Anniversary Scholarships

In honour of our 30th anniversary, the PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF) will be awarding professional development scholarships to chapter members! The PMI initiated this program to celebrate significant chapter milestones. This generous scholarship allows us to support your continuing education in project management as well as promote lifelong learning. The scholarship can be used to pay for an online or classroom course of your choice.

As a PMI member, you will have priority over other applicants. All applications will be reviewed by an external panel of judges at the PMIEF. The submission deadline is July 31.

Please join us at the ABM as we kick off this amazing event! Click here for further details.
