INTIX has established a scholarship program to achieve the following objectives:
- Assist ticketing professionals in reaching a higher level of performance by participating in INTIX conferences;
- Support organizations who do not have the budget to cover professional development costs by enabling them to provide continuing education to their employees;
- Enhance the knowledge of ticketing professionals so that they, in turn, will contribute to their organization and the profession as a whole.
Applicant must be a ticketing professional (full-time, part-time or freelance) with a minimum of three years paid experience. Ticket professionals who are currently seeking employment are welcome to apply providing they have a minimum of three years of paid experience. Applicant is only eligible for one grant within a five-year period. Applicant's employing organization must be financially unable to pay the registration fee. Previous grant recipients and organizations are ineligible to apply for five years from the time the previous grant was awarded. Applicant must submit a letter of support from the ticketing professional's employing organization which details the applicant's professional need, organizational need, and financial need to attend the conference. INTIX membership is not required.
Please be advised that only complete applications will be considered.
The Professional Development Grants Committee uses the following judging standards in awarding grants:
50% Professional need
10% Financial need
10% INTIX Involvement
10% Organization type
DESCRIPTION OF AWARDS
Grants are primarily in the form of registration fee waivers. A select number of grants can include funding for both fee waivers and travel expenses. Funding for travel expenses will vary from event to event and be reflected in the annual budget. Grants are specific to the conference that an application was submitted and cannot be deferred for use at a future event.
RESPONSIBILITIES OF RECIPIENTS
Recipients must attend the full program on the date and location specified in their application. The grant is not transferable to another individual. Recipients must fill out the appropriate INTIX evaluation form in full after the meeting. Grant recipients are strongly encouraged to attend the committee meetings at the conference and are invited to join a committee.
NOTIFICATION OF SELECTION
Applicants will receive written notification of their selection no later than four weeks before the starting date of the program.
The INTIX Professional Development Grants Committee will have final responsibility for awarding the grants.
