At the Event Leadership Institute, we succeed when the events industry succeeds.  We all know that things are challenging in the events industry right now and we want to help event professionals as much as we can with the work that we do – providing quality education and professional development.  But sometimes we need to do a little more. So to help out a few of our industry friends that don’t have the means to enroll in a course right now, we’ve created this scholarship program.

With the support of our partners and sponsors, Event Leadership Institute has made a limited amount of scholarships available to cover course fees for selected applicants that have met eligibility criteria and have been chosen to receive the award by our Scholarship Committee. ELI also matches each sponsor's contributions dollar-for-dollar, doubling the total number of available scholarships for event and meeting professionals. Please see the terms and conditions below for additional details.

Thank you for your interest in the program, please note however that due to the volume of applications received, we are only able to respond to applicants which were selected to receive the award. Applications are reviewed by the ELI Scholarship Committee within seven business days.  If you have any questions, please email

Thank You To Our Sponsors!
