Certified Meeting Professional Scholarships

 

The Event Industry Council (EIC) (formerly the Convention Industry Council CIC) offers the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) program.

The CMP program aims to increase the professionalism of meeting management professionals in all sectors of the industry by:

  • Identifying a comprehensive body of knowledge in the meeting management profession
  • Promoting industry standards, practices and ethics
  • Stimulating the advancement of the art and science of meeting management
  • Increasing the value of Certified Meeting Professionals to their employers
  • Maximizing the value received from the products and services provided by CMPs

 
There is a $250 application fee that we do not pay.  Once approved to take the exam, the Lam Foundation will pay the $450 testing fee directly to CIC on your behalf if your scholarship application is approved.  

This scholarship is for first time testing only—you cannot apply for retesting or recertification.

You must be at least 21 years old.
