The International Association of Emergency Managers established the IAEM Scholarship Program to nurture, promote and develop disaster preparedness and resistance by furthering the education of students studying the field of emergency management, disaster management or a related program.
The purpose 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 or disaster management.
The program is sustained through donations from individuals and corporations. The Scholarship Commission’s current goal is to reach $1 million in the endowment fund to ensure IAEM Scholarships into the foreseeable future.
The 2018 IAEM Scholarship application period opens on Apr. 23, 2018. Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. EDT, June 12, 2018. Learn more.
The online IAEM Scholarship Auction is now open with auction items ranging from exotic vacation getaways to donated items guaranteed to delight and surprise. The online auction will run June 1 through June 21, 2018. More items will be added to the auction, so be sure to check back regularly. So, please tell your friends, family, community about our auction. Let the bidding begin!
And remember – your participation helps send students earning degrees in emergency management, disaster management or a closely related program of study to school. Your donations or purchases may help educate the person that someday directs the response to a disaster in your community or helps the community or its residents recover from a natural or man-made disaster.
