BWME’s Professional Development Scholarship Fund

BWME’s Professional Development Scholarship Fund (BWME Cares) offers scholarship opportunities to promote the continued education of our members. In our ever-evolving industry, staying on top of your game requires a lifetime of learning. We want to help you get there and stay there. Please see below to see if you are eligible. Please note all applicants must have been a BWME member in good standing for at least one year, and have at least three months left on current membership.
