MPI AZ is pleased to be able to offer two scholarships for the 2021  EduCon, to be held August 20-22, 2021 at the Harrah's Ak-Chin Resort and Casino in Maricopa, Arizona. We are able to do this due to the generosity of our members, and even non-members, who donated funds through our “Pay It Forward “program to support those members who need financial assistance to be able to participate in our education programs in 2020 and 2021.

2021 Bobette J. Gorden Scholarship


This scholarship, named for its generous donor, is intended to assist an MPI AZ member with attendance to MPI’s World Education Congress (WEC). It was designed to encourage and cultivate chapter leadership.

The 2021 WEC will be held in Las Vegas, June 14-17, 2021. Applications will open in Spring 2021.
