IPMA-HR Central Region
The Central Region Training Scholarship was created by the Central Region Executive Board in 2009 to foster support for IPMA-HR in the region and to further the professional development of an individual who otherwise would be unable to participate in a regional training event. In 2014, the scholarship was renamed to the Patrick A. Parsons Training Scholarship, in honor of past Central Region President and long-time IPMA-HR member Pat Parsons.
The Patrick A. Parsons Training Scholarship provides free registration to the Annual Central Region Training Conference and reimbursement of up to $750 in travel expenses for a Central Region member who has proven his/her interest in IPMA-HR, as evidenced by participation in chapter, region and/or national activities.
Scholarships applicants are asked to describe their past involvement with IPMA-HR and their future plans for continued active participation. The recipients of the Patrick A. Parsons Training Scholarship serve on the Central Region Membership Committee for that year’s conference.
