ASAE Research Foundation Announces 2023 ASAE-USAE Travel Scholarship

March 30, 2023

WASHINGTON— The ASAE Research Foundation is proud to announce the return of the ASAE-USAE Travel Scholarship for 2023. The ASAE-USAE Travel Scholarship was developed to support a diverse pool of ASAE members who are committed to advancing their knowledge, network and career development and who would otherwise not be able to attend ASAE learning events due to budgetary constraints.

Through the ASAE-USAE Travel Scholarship, grants of up to $5,000 are awarded to three eligible association professionals to offset costs to attend the 2023 ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition in Atlanta, Aug. 5-8, 2023, plus two additional ASAE in-person educational events. Complimentary registration for these events is included in the award.

The application portal for the scholarship opened March 24 and will close April 24.

“ASAE and the ASAE Research Foundation are committed to developing leadership pathways for diverse association professionals to make their mark in our community,” said ASAE President and CEO Michelle Mason, FASAE, CAE. “We look forward to seeing three deserving scholarship recipients take full advantage of the learning and networking opportunities at the 2023 ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition that will benefit their career development and the organizations they serve.”

The ASAE-USAE Travel Scholarship is made possible through a generous $100,000 gift to the ASAE Research Foundation from Ross E. Heller and his late wife Anne Daly Heller, founders and publishers of USAE weekly newspaper.

“The ASAE-USAE Travel Scholarship is among USAE’s most important initiatives within the association community. It allows worthy ASAE members who otherwise would not be able to attend the annual meeting the opportunity to travel, learn and network with their peers,” said USAE Founder and Publisher Ross E. Heller.
