With support from Destination Toronto, MPI Foundation is awarding United States planners scholarships for the full cost of their HMCC course.

Designed for medical meeting professionals and the partners they work with, MPI’s Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate offers a broad understanding of regulatory topics. This intensive, four-hour program provides healthcare meeting compliance stakeholders with the knowledge and experience they need to successfully navigate the increasingly complex pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device regulatory environment.



Scholarships are available to US Planners through generous support from VisitDallas. These scholarships will cover the recipient's registration costs.



Thanks to generous support from Wyndham, planners in the US can apply for scholarships that grant a full year of membership at the Preferred Level. 

Applications open in April.

These WEC scholarships are available for suppliers who are members of MPI and planners who live outside of the US. 







I am so honored to be awarded with this scholarship. These funds will be used to help fund my expenses for my Spring Semester of 2023 at the Florence University of the Arts, where I will be studying abroad for the semester.
I am honored to receive this award. It will make a huge impact on my career and education.
I knew I wanted to be an event planner from a young age. I was so dedicated to events that I was able to skip my senior year of high school to go to Johnson and Wales a year early to get my degree in event management.
