If you have or know a college bound high school student who graduated in 2016 or is graduating this year...

Eligible dependents of PMI Hudson Valley Chapter members, who graduated high school in 2016 or who will be graduating high school in 2017, have a chance to win up to $1,500.00 in college scholarship awards offered through the PMI Hudson Valley Chapters annual scholarship program. Award finalists and amounts will be determined based on scholastic achievements (25%), community involvement and character (30%), recommendation letters (10%) and an essay (35%) on the value of Project Management.

Project Management is a discipline and approach applicable to all areas of business, including academics, as well as to life in general. PMI is a non-profit organization, first established in 1969, which has promoted and cultivated Project Management as a profession acknowledged and adopted by many large companies and governmental agencies. The local PMI Chapters were formed to provide a forum for Project Managers (PMs) or potential PMs to network, share best practices and further promote the profession.

  • Be a dependent of a PMI HVC member in good standing — Join Now!
