CPSM Scholarship

The Kelly McGann Path to Certification Scholarship

The SMPS Philadelphia Chapter is pleased to offer a CPSM (Certified Professional Services Marketer) scholarship for 2021. Named in honor of Kelly McGann, CPSM, it will be awarded to an eligible SMPS Chapter member who is committed to obtaining CPSM certification in 2021. Valued at $800, the scholarship consists of the Boot Camp fee, application fee, online exam fee, and SMPS suggested reading materials. The exam fee reimbursement is contingent upon a passing grade.

The recipient must meet all eligibility requirements and submission requests. Priority will be given to applicants based on their length of membership, level of activity and involvement within the chapter, and plans for continued growth and involvement with SMPS and in promoting the CPSM program. Selection will be made by the current Chapter Board, a representative from the Chapter Past Presidents, and the Chapter Champion at the time of judging. Current board members who wish to apply must excuse themselves from the vote.
