Student Scholarships

Each year, PRIMA awards Annual Conference scholarships to students enrolled in risk management, public policy, public administration, economics, business administration and other related degree programs. The scholarship covers conference registration fees, meals, hotel accommodations, and transportation  to  PRIMA's Annual Conference. The scholarship affords selected students an opportunity to attend the educational sessions as well as the special events at the PRIMA Annual Conference, which will take place June 4-7, 2017, in Phoenix.

Scholarship recipients are paired with a PRIMA member who is an experienced risk manager. The PRIMA member serves as a mentor who will help the students network and gain industry knowledge before, during and after PRIMA’s Annual Conference. The recipients will also receive a complimentary one-year student membership to PRIMA.
