The Scholarship Program awards active members with a scholarship applied towards approved educational conferences.

We do not host a regional or national conference. Instead, we have partnered with the best in the industry — The Special Event Conference and Tradeshow.

For additional resources, check out our The Special Event page and our TSE 2018 Resource Letter for additional ways to attend.

The Special Event (TSE) 2018 will be held January 30 through February 1 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Scholarship recipients receive a complimentary education package and have the opportunity to work behind the scenes at the conference through the Hands-On Hundred Program, while earning credit through the SEPA Experience Program.

The remaining time may be spent networking and attending educational sessions for credit through the SEPA Education Program.

SEPA selects two scholarship recipients to participate in the Hands-On Hundred Program each year.

To be eligible for a scholarship, you must be an active student member. Priority is given to longstanding members and/or those who serve in leadership positions within the organization.

By completing ten hours through the Hands-On Hundred Program, scholarship recipients earn ten credits towards the Experience Program.

With a complimentary education package, scholarship recipients earn ten credits through the Education Program by attending conference sessions.
