NBIA/State Association Joint Scholarship Program
The National Business Incubation Association has partnered again with state business incubation associations to sponsor NBIA/State Association Joint Scholarships for the International Conference on Business Incubation. Scholarship recipients will receive conference registration to attend NBIA’s 2010 conference, to be held May 16-19 in Orlando, Fla.
Scholarship recipients are responsible for all travel, lodging, meals (outside of any meals included in the conference registration fee), and other expenses associated with attending the conference.
Two individuals received NBIA/State Association Joint Scholarships for NBIA’s 2009 conference in Kansas City, Mo.
Contact your state association to determine if it will be participating in the program this year and, if so, how to apply for its scholarship.
NBIA International Conference on Business Incubation Scholarship
Thanks to the generous support received during the Silent Auction at NBIA’s 23rd International Conference on Business Incubation in Kansas City, Mo., NBIA will award up to five scholarships to NBIA members for the 2010 conference in Orlando, Fla. The scholarships reduce the conference registration fee to $89 for recipients. Note: These scholarships are available to first-time conference attendees only, and applicants must be NBIA members. The deadline to submit an application for the first-time attendee scholarship is Feb. 26, 2010.
