MCEIA Leadership Development Scholarship

CEIA is pleased to recognize the Midwest Cooperative Education and Internship Association (MCEIA) as a proud supporter of the CEIA Academy. In 2020, the MCEIA Leadership Development Fund was established to support CEIA Region 4 (Midwest) members with Academy Scholarships. The fund honors the long tradition of Midwest leaders in the field of cooperative education and celebrates the legacy of MCEIA, which served as a professional development association from 1975 to 2013.

Active CEIA Members from Region 4 are eligible to apply for a registration scholarship to participate in a CEIA Academy program. Region 4 includes members from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The scholarship will cover the cost of the registration fee for any Academy training session. Awardees will be responsible for all other costs to attend, i.e. transportation, hotel, etc.


Scholarship applications are accepted on a rolling basis. We recommend submitting the application well in advance of the Academy program that you would like to attend. Up to three scholarships will be awarded each year.
