Scholarship Program


OMA Scholarship Program

Each year, OMA awards scholarships to the OMA Annual Fall Conference and other OMA seminars and workshops. Scholarships are awarded on a demonstrated need basis to qualified applicants and cover registration fees only. Travel, lodging, and per diem are not included in the scholarship award. OMA reserves the right to limit the number of scholarships available for any workshop, seminar or conference. OMA scholarship decisions are final. Priority will be given to individuals/organizations who have not received a scholarship from OMA in the past year to attend training.
