Pay It Forward: State Scholarships
Institute partners with state chamber of commerce executives associations (CCEs) and societies of association executives (SAEs) to provide scholarships for incoming first-year students.
Through the Pay It Forward Program, Institute provides two $500 scholarships to participating state CCE and SAE organizations that partner with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation to market the Institute program to their members. The scholarships are intended to help participating CCE and SAE member professionals attend Institute for the very first time.
Scholarship recipients are chosen under the discretion of the state organization and are only available to first-year students. Scholarships assist with the cost of tuition only, and cannot be combined with other scholarships offered through Institute (e.g. National, Regent, Faculty, or Alumni Scholarships).
Below are state organizations who are participating or have participated in the past. Please check with your state society for current status. For more information about scholarship availability or to apply, please contact your individual state organization directly.
If your state organization is not listed, please call the Institute office at 202-463-5570 or contact your individual state organization to see if they would like to participate.
