Members value the opportunity and information that the UPCEA regional conference offers to the Central Region, but with fiscal challenges many institutions face, trying to secure funds for professional development can be difficult. We do not want to see our colleagues and network fall behind in the race to offer innovative and high-quality professional, continuing and online education.
As a region, we want to do our part to assist in making those necessary connections for program innovation, exchange of insights and the creation of practical and actionable plans in Indianapolis possible. The UPCEA Central Region is excited to offer multiple conference attendee scholarships this year in an effort to help. The Central Region is eager to award 14 scholarships in the amount of $175 to individual first-time attendees who have financial need and career aspirations in continuing or distance education. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to register for half the cost of early-bird registration!
