The Anysia Drumheller Memorial Scholarship was created in 2013 by the NAME Board of Directors in memory of our longtime member, Anysia Drumheller. Anysia was elected to serve on the NAME Board of Directors, appointed Chair of the NAME Membership Committee and became an Honorary NAME Board Member prior to her death in May 2013. Her numerous contributions to NAME, service to existing members and determination to recruit new members are commemorated by this generous scholarship.
In 2017, the NAME Board of Directors approved three individual scholarships- one for each NAME Region (See NAME Regions). Each scholarship will provide reimbursement (not to exceed $1,000) of reasonable travel costs and lodging for the 15th Annual NAME Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Individuals employed by a State Medicaid Agency, State Education Agency or Local Education Agency are eligible to apply for the scholarship if their costs for attending the 15th Annual NAME Conference are not covered by their employer and they have not already registered for the conference. In addition to travel and lodging reimbursement up to $1,000, scholarship recipients will receive 2017 conference registration and complimentary NAME membership through December 31, 2018.
Deadline For Submission: August 15, 2017
