Northwest Chapter Endowment Fund
Our Professional Development Program is intended to increase excellence in the market research industry. Recipients will be able to take advantage of the program to assist in their educational endeavors.
Individual award amounts typically range from $250 to $500. Individual awards will be provided based on personal criteria and needs, and may not cover the entire cost of the course, seminar, specialized training, etc. Any member may apply for an award for his or her own use or for one of their full or part-time employees.
The NorthWest MRA Professional Development Program will allow the recipient to pursue a course that will upgrade skills used in their current position or prepare them for additional responsibilities through traditional schooling or specialized training sessions.
