ASAE-USAE Travel Scholarship
The ASAE-USAE Travel Scholarship awards three scholarships annually to support a diverse pool of ASAE members who are committed to advancing their knowledge, network, and career development in association management. Applicants must demonstrate they would not be able to attend ASAE in person learning events due to organizational budgetary constraints. Applicants are required to submit letter from their organization supporting this need.
ASAE will provide complimentary registration for awardees to attend the ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition and two additional ASAE in-person educational events. Each grant of up to $5,000 will be awarded to three association professionals who meet the eligibility requirements and wish to attend ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition, plus two additional ASAE in-person educational events. Complimentary registration for these events is included in the award. Once granted, the stipend (made payable to awardees employer) is intended to cover the cost of awardee’s transportation, hotel accommodations, meals, and incidentals.
In 2021, Ross E. Heller, founder, and publisher of USAE and CustomNEWS, Inc., donated $100,000 to ASAE Research Foundation for the creation of a restricted fund that will provide financial assistance to ASAE members seeking to attend ASAE Annual Meeting for professional development, networking, and career advancement. The ASAE-USAE Travel Scholarship honors Anne Daly Heller, who passed away in 2021.
