Your Support at Work

As Work-Integrated Learning experiences are key to students’ success in obtaining full-time positions after graduation, it is crucial to give students from all backgrounds access to these meaningful experiences. Your support will provide training for practitioners in the field as well as publish best practices, industry research and success stories in Experience Magazine™.

Your support helps finance all aspects of Work-Integrated Learning opportunities for students, professional development for Work-Integrated Learning practitioners, research, and much more including:

Support Student Awards and Research Grants

CEIA funds a number of competitive awards for outstanding students and professionals each year. Support for these awards  would provide your organization with a connection to the award and publicity associated with communications regarding the award.

CEIA sponsors a fund to assist student award recipients with travel expenses to attend the annual conference banquet so they can be recognized for their accomplishments. Your donation to this student fund would provide your organization with recognition of this sponsorship.

Bi-annual research grants include the Undergraduate Research Project.

Support Diversity & Inclusion

The Diversity & Inclusion Fellowship Program will support selecting and honoring work-integrated learning professionals from underrepresented identities with expertise in promoting the values of diversity, equity and inclusion. In concert with the association’s conference and diversity and inclusion committees, selected fellows will design and facilitate programming at the annual conference. Fellow(s) will showcase diverse, equitable, and inclusive perspectives, practices, and policies that enhance and expand the positive impact of work-integrated learning. This Program will provide the financial resources to fund a conference registration and one year membership for selected fellows.

Support the CEIA National Conference

An annual conference takes place in a different location across the United States each year. This conference offers an outstanding program, and with your support, ample opportunities for professionals in the field to share their diverse ideas and high impact practices. Conference highlights include programming to serve beginning, intermediate, and experienced professionals, a variety of networking opportunities, a digital lounge with informative tech sessions, exhibitors and a Gala Awards Dinner to celebrate the successes of student and professional award  recipients.
