Annual Scholar Program


ASCM 2019 is quickly approaching and we'd like to invite our APICS chapter leaders to donate to the annual Scholar Program.  Each year, we strive to bring 50 (or more) of our best and brightest student members to the annual conference. The most common feedback we get from our scholars is how invaluable the face to face networking is for them at this event.  This opportunity opens doors and plants the seeds for future success.

As APICS chapter leaders, you are in a position to directly interact with the students in your community, through the APICS student chapters you support, through plant tours, mentoring, etc. – bringing their class experience to life.

Here are some ways you can help ASCM make an impact:

  • Encourage the students in your chapter to apply for the Scholar program. Deadline: April 28, 2019.
  • Donate! Every amount helps to build the program.  We accept donations year-round, however, if you are interested in sponsoring a specific scholar in your area, now is the time to act.  The deadline for direct sponsorship is May 15th!  We are asking for a donation of $1500 per student. If you would like to further discuss this option, please contact me directly at
  • Mentor! Many chapter leaders  are strong supporters  of our scholar mentor program over the years.  I hope that you will sign up again this year with your conference registration.  Having a personal mentor onsite can help a student to open up socially.  I do my best to match one on one based on industry interest and geographical location to help make the most out of the connection.

I am available to answer any questions you may have, either within this thread or through my email address listed above.

Thank you all for your continued support of  student members and APICS student chapters – the next generation of supply chain professionals.

I hope to see you all in September!
