Unlimited Scholarship Award

The IACA recognizes that training budgets are often restricted, making it difficult to send analysts to training. To assist IACA members who lack funding for training, the IACA Board and the Awards and Recognition Committee has created a conference scholarship that will be awarded to one member at random.

The unrestricted scholarship will include the following:

  • Roundtrip airfare to/from the conference (*see restrictions below)
  • Five (5) night stay at the conference hotel
  • Conference registration fee waived
  • $150 (USD) stipend (to assist with baggage fees, taxi/shuttle or other costs)


Submission period April 2024 (dates TBD).

Award Conditions

If selected, scholarship recipients agree to volunteer four (4) hours to assist the Conference and/or Awards & Recognition Committee.

Award benefits are non-transferable. 

* Each scholarship recipient must make airfare arrangements through the IACA-approved travel agency by a specified deadline (to be determined) and communicated to the recipient. The traveler is responsible for any airfare charges/increases after this date and if notifications have not been made to the Awards and Recognition Committee prior to this date, the recipient risks forfeiting their scholarship to the next eligible participant.

Notification Winners will be notified (dates TBD).


The Awards and Recognition Committee reserves the right to disqualify any entry that does not meet the requirements above. 

A confirmation email will be sent at the time of submission. A copy can also be found in the member Profile under Message History.
