Scholarship Opportunities 

Part of the GBTA - North Central Chapter's mission statement is to provide avenues for advancement in the travel industry for its members. All scholarship funds will be used to support the professional advancement/development of GBTA - North Central Chapter members.

GBTA - North Central Chapter supports the pursuit of professional certification through the Global Business Travel Association’s (GBTA) programs and educational offerings. Due to our affiliation with GBTA, GBTA Foundation (formerly Institute of Business Travel Management) and the CPC (Chapter President’s Council) we are able to offer educational scholarships for a variety of programs in addition to our local GBTA - North Central Chapter scholarships.
