I hope you had a safe, healthy and happy Holiday Season.

I am pleased to announce that applications for the 2017-2018 IPMA-HR Connecticut Chapter Sandra Biloon Memorial Scholarship are now being accepted. This $1,000 meritorious scholarship is available to current members* and their children and may be used toward the cost of tuition or books.  We encourage you to apply if you or your child will be attending a 2-year or 4-year accredited college/university, or will be participating in a Master’s Degree program (this last option is limited to IPMA-HR members only) at an accredited college/university for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Applications and required materials must be received or hand-delivered no later than Monday, April 3, 2017. All candidates will be notified of their status in May and the scholarship will be formally awarded at the June 2017 IPMA-HR CT Chapter program.

Previous applicants who were not awarded the scholarship may reapply this year and are encouraged to do so if still eligible for the program.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or any of the Scholarship Committee Members identified below.
