PMINJ Scholarships

The PMINJ College Scholarship is intended to give back to individuals who support the Project Management profession and the PMINJ Chapter.   It is neither a needs-based scholarship nor is it restricted to a particular field of study. The award is earmarked to assist the PMINJ members, children of PMINJ members and PMINJ student members who have aspirations of attending and succeeding in college and is intended to help defray the high costs of higher education. There is an Undergraduate and a Graduate scholarship program.
