IMA Professional and friend Jimmie Smith passed on this information about the IMA scholarship program.Note one needs to be a member but that is not expensive. Touch base with m on this, why not apply? Apparently not many Texas students have taken advantage of this opportunity.
Let me know if you submit an application.
he Institute of Management Accountants (IMA®), the world’s leading organization dedicated to supporting accountants and financial professionals in business, is accepting applications for its national scholarship programs: The Memorial Education Fund (MEF) and the Stuart Cameron and Margaret McLeod Memorial Scholarships, now through February 15, 2012. Interested students can download an application form at IMA’s website at http://www.imanet.org/PDFs/Public/Scholarships_Rewards/SCMS_Scholarship%202011-2012%20Final.pdf.
Any IMA student member who has not previously received an IMA scholarship is encouraged to apply. MEF Scholarships are given at both the undergraduate and graduate student levels, and are based on academic merit and strength of outside recommendations, among other criteria. The scholarships carry awards ranging from $1,000 to $2,500.
In addition, any student who applies for an MEF Scholarship is automatically considered for the prestigious Stuart Cameron and Margaret McLeod Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship, which carries a $5,000 award, is given to one individual among the entire scholarship application pool who exemplifies excellence in all eligibility criteria. The award also includes lodging, transportation, and registration to IMA’s Annual Conference & Exposition in June and the IMA Student Leadership Conference in November, which will be November 1-3 in San Antonio.
The Stuart Cameron and Margaret McLeod Memorial Scholarship is bestowed annually by the Stuart Cameron McLeod Society (SCMS). Founded in 1934, SCMS is a special membership community within IMA whose members share a long history of service to IMA.
