MPI Toronto Chapter Bursaries
& Scholarships

MPI Toronto Chapter understands the importance of education within the meetings industry. We also recognize that many of our members very often rely on themselves to support the costs associated with their MPI membership and education.

Bursaries are available for:



Raindrops on Roses, is a social community, launched by Debbie van der Beek, president + publisher of both Ignite and Adrenalin magazine in November 2020. It was created for both fun and purpose. For fun, as a platform for individuals to connect, share, and support each other in a safe judgment-free environment. And for purpose, to provide complimentary education and skill development for individuals within the meeting and event industry.

This bursary is available to MPI Toronto Chapter members who have lost their job or are dealing with reduced work hours/income due to the global pandemic.
