Epsilon Pi Tau, ATMAE’s official honor society, is offering scholarships to deserving ATMAE members to encourage attendance at the ATMAE Conference and to join EPT.
 
The scholarships honor former ATMAE (NAIT) Executive Director, Dr. Al Rudisill, for his dedication and his impressive leadership record. The scholarships for convention attendance will be awarded to deserving ATMAE members, who are not members of EPT, encouraging them to attend the 2019 ATMAE Conference in Charlotte, NC, with the expectation that they will be initiated at the EPT Exemplary Initiation.
 
Epsilon Pi Tau will offer $500 ATMAE Conference Attendance Scholarships to ATMAE members in all divisions. The scholarships are awarded to the individuals as a cash grant, and can cover EPT membership, ATMAE registration, and help defray travel and lodging expenses.
 
Criteria and Process for Awarding the Scholarship: 
 
Nominate another person or yourself, if they fit these criteria:
  • An ATMAE professional member in any division who is NOT an EPT member.
  • They have a record of academic excellence and/or leadership potential.
  • They are willing to attend ATMAE’s full 2019 Conference.
  • They are willing to become initiated into Epsilon Pi Tau at the Exemplary Initiation held at ATMAE’s  conference on Thursday evening, November 7, 2019
How to Nominate:
Act immediately by sending your nominations (names and email addresses of qualified individuals) to EPT at ept@bgsu.edu
 
The deadline for nominations is October 10, 2019. Additionally, we ask for names and email addresses of qualified technology leaders whom you would recommend to be invited to become members of EPT at the Exemplary Initiation. The EPT Office will obtain the nominee’s resume and commitments concerning attendance and becoming an EPT member.
 
A committee of members from EPT will review and assess the recommendations, make the final selection for the scholarships and notify the recipients. The recipients will be inducted into membership at the Epsilon Pi Tau Exemplary Initiation on Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 5:30 pm. The Scholarship awards will be presented at the ATMAE Awards Luncheon on Friday, November 8, 2019 at 12:00 pm.
