We may be in the midst of winter at the moment, but it's time to think ahead to the warm days of summer and our national conference, which will be held June 29 through July 2 in historic Newport, RI! We have a variety of scholarships and awards available to provide support for and recognize the achievements of our members.
Scholarships provide funding for recipients to attend the conference. Nominations and applications are due on March 15. Learn more about the three types of scholarships that are offered here >
Our award recipients receive a one-year NMEA membership and engraved awards at the conference. April 1 is the deadline for all awards submissions, except for the new Johnette D. Bosarge Memorial Award, which is due February 20 . The recipient of this award will receive a sea star sculpture with their name, which will also be presented during the awards ceremony at our annual conference.
