Professional Development Sponsorships

Every month, the AMA-KC provides five students free admission (a $35 value) to the chapter’s professional development programs, thanks to a generous donation from Google, Nike and Facebook. Sponsorships are given on a first-come, first served basis. For more information, please contact staff@amakc.com.

The purpose of the AMA-KC scholarship seats is to introduce full-time students to the local chapter and encourage them to become involved with the chapter. To qualify, students must have a valid student ID. Preference is given to full-time student AMA members. Students may use up to 2 scholarship seats per year. The same student may take advantage of these complimentary seats over a 2-year period, after which the seats open up to new students. Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis for students who volunteer significant time on behalf of the chapter.
