Purpose: To provide up to $500.00 (based on available funding) to one recipient from each member state of the
Mountain Plains Adult Education Association to be used to attend conferences or other staff development
activities during the MPAEA year, which runs from the beginning of the annual conference through the
conference of the following year.
In most instances the stipend will be used to defray expenses to the annual MPAEA Conference, although other functions related to lifelong learning may be considered. Applicants must be current MPAEA members or submit a membership application with this request. At the time of selection by the Scholarship Committee, one alternate will be named for the award should the first grantee be unable to fulfill the terms of the scholarship. The recipient and alternate will be notified within one month after the application deadline. The award will be made at the MPAEA Conference and can be used at any time through the conference of the following year. Once an application is approved, no other activity can be substituted for the approved activity.
