Apply for a scholarship to the 2017 Annual Conference

Each year, the Texas Association of Convention & Visitor Bureaus offers three scholarships to Annual Conference. Each Annual Conference scholarship consists of one complimentary registration to the conference plus a reimbursement of actual expenses (travel, lodging, meals) of up to $800.

Below are the requirements for consideration (you do not have to be a TACVB member to be considered). Applications will be forwarded to the TACVB Scholarship Committee for their consideration, so please complete the application form (including the and letter(s) of recommendation) by Friday, June 30, 2017.

One Annual Conference scholarship applicant whose application and letter(s) of recommendation are deemed outstanding will receive the honor of the “Tom Trotter” Scholarship (Tom Trotter was a well-liked professional in our industry whose untimely passing caused TACVB to create this special scholarship fund in his memory).

The following qualifications are required before your application can be considered:

  • Scholarship applicants must work for a convention & visitors bureau or chamber of commerce.
  • Scholarship applicants do not have to be members of TACVB to qualify.
  • In order to most fairly assist chambers/bureaus, scholarships will not be awarded to applicants from chambers/bureaus who received a TACVB education conference scholarship for the 2016 Annual Conference.
  • Each scholarship applicant must include at least one letter of endorsement/ recommendation from a CEO of a TACVB member bureau OR from your CVB/Chamber Board Chairman in order to be considered. Please note that if you are staff, the letter must come from a CEO of a TACVB member bureau other than your own CEO or it can be from your CVB/Chamber Board Chairman. IT CANNOT BE FROM YOUR CEO.

Thank you and best of luck to our applicants!
