The IOA International Committee announces the availability of financial support to sponsor members or prospective members living outside of the United States and Canada to attend the upcoming IOA 10th Annual Conference taking place April 19-22, 2015 in Atlanta, GA. Recipients may also be entitled to take the basic IOA course: “Foundations of Organizational Ombudsman Practice,” offered prior to the conference.
Through this scholarship initiative, the IOA provides greater access for practicing Ombuds professionals and other eligible applicants in regions that the IOA recognizes would greatly benefit from outreach, support and development in the Ombuds field, and from which regions the profession would benefit from greater participation. Applicants must work outside the U.S. and Canada, practice as Organizational Ombuds, and provide evidence of financial need.
Priority will be given to applicants whose participation may be instrumental in the advancement of the Organizational Ombuds profession. Applications are due November 25, 2014. (IOA 2015 Scholarship Info.)
