NYCBTA will be announcing available scholarships at an upcoming Members Only Meeting.   We look forward to your participation!

2018 Member Scholarship Program

NYCBTA’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce our Member Scholarship Program

The primary focus in creating the Scholarship Program was to provide additional resources and opportunities to our membership that support and enhance their professional and personal goals. While NYCBTA’s monthly meetings provide excellent content and highlight industry trends, there are industry functions outside NYCBTA that further complement our internal learnings. 

Each scholarship will be specific to function and timing, and the dollar amounts awarded will vary.  Recipients will be determined by the Board of Directors, through an application process.

We recognize the importance of an active membership.  This Scholarship Program is designed to give back and award those chapter members who continually support and participate in NYCBTA meetings, events, and initiatives. 

Best wishes,

NYCBTA Board of Directors
