The Auction Helps With Scholarships

We are pleased to have a large number of scholarship recipients again this year.  Over the past nine years, MPMA has provided generous financial support to over 140 people to attend the Annual Conference and to receive the professional training MPMA is known for. 

MPMA Conference Attendees have generously donated over the years to make the Scholarship Program a HUGE success.  We thank you!!!

One of the obligations for past MPMA Scholarship Recipients is writing an essay.  This is where we hear things that inspire all of us. 

Nicole Becker, Class of 2009, wrote this about our Late-Nite Session:  I believe that not one person walked away from the room without their individual passions and visions for museums being influenced in a new way.” 

Abigail Jones, Class of 2011, said, “The MPMA scholarships are a vital aspect to the conference.  As an emerging professional, there is not a greater training opportunity than attending and being able to present at an annual conference.” 

It is thrilling to know we are making a difference in people’s lives.  We look forward to hearing what future recipients have to say about this year’s Annual Conference and how it changed them.
