The International Association of Emergency Managers Scholarship Program was established to nurture, promote and develop disaster preparedness and resilience by furthering the education of students studying the field of emergency management.
The ultimate mission of the program is to assist the profession by identifying and developing students with the intellect and technical skills that can advance and enhance emergency management.
Through donations from individuals, companies and organizations, IAEM's goal is to raise $1,000,000 to fund scholarship awards to undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in an accredited college program, pursuing a degree that includes courses in emergency management/community planning (most often as part of a program in public or business administration). For each principal amount of approximately $30,000, IAEM should be able to provide a student with a scholarship of $2,000.
The emergency management profession's greatest future asset is people of high-level intellect and commitment. The IAEM Scholarship Program seeks to identify, secure and encourage the commitment of these invaluable human resources of the future, by providing assistance through scholarship awards.
Maybe for your local community. The International Association of Emergency Managers works with college educators to identify potential scholarship recipients and promotes the employment of qualified professional emergency managers.
Scholarships will be awarded by the IAEM Scholarship Selection Committee to undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in an accredited college program, pursuing a degree that includes courses in emergency management/community planning (most often as part of a program in public or business administration). Scholarship applicants will complete an application form for review and approval. Each applicant will be required to briefly write of his/her professional aspirations.
Your donation will help to fund scholarships through interest monies drawn from a principal fund of donations. Ultimately, you will be actively contributing to the profession's ability to better prepare for emergencies in the future.
