Rita Lashway, CAE Scholarship Fund


Rita Lashway, CAE has made an extraordinary impact by strengthening the membership of ESSAE in many ways. For the innumerable contributions she has bestowed on ESSAE and its members, we have established the Rita Lashway CAE Scholarship Fund.

The Fund will provide ESSAE member association professionals financial aid for the training and expenses involved in obtaining their Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation.  The scholarship will entitle the recipient to receive $500 toward fees, books and/or related expenses, awarded to a member in good standing of ESSAE who is eligible to attain the CAE designation.
Award can be used towards the ESSAE Association Leadership Academy!

The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of merit and financial need, and will be considered by a judging panel of CAEs. Applications will be held in strict confidence and will be reviewed by the panel.
