Scholarships

 

CNFBTA believes complete and intimate knowledge of the travel industry is crucial to the success of our members. To support this initiative, we are pleased to provide scholarship funds back to our members.  Individual scholarships shall not exceed $1,000.00 to ensure that several scholarships can be awarded to deserving active Direct or Allied members of CNFBTA.

What can Scholarships be used for?

  • Tuition reimbursement for any educational, industry related course or conference, including GBTA and industry webinars. 
  • Offset registration of attending GBTA’s National Convention (GBTA 2018 registration is already open, so take advantage of early bird pricing by signing up now!)

  (Note: Scholarship funds cannot be used toward travel expenses related to the educational event)

  • Offset the membership fees for joining, or retaining, a membership with GBTA.
  • New/1st year Direct and Supplier Membership, when sponsored by a CNFBTA member.
