The Kevin A. Kelly Scholarship Program was established to:

  • Assist association and not-for-profit professionals in reaching a higher level of performance.

  • Assist organizations with the sometimes unaffordable professional development costs and thereby contribute to their ability to provide continuing education to their employees.

  • Enhance the knowledge of association and not-for-profit employees so that they, in turn, will contribute to their organization and the profession as a whole. Scholarships will be awarded for MSAE or other organizational management seminars/conferences.
