2018 GBTA Austin Chapter Global Travel Professional – GTP Certification Scholarships (copy)

Education and Professional Development opportunities are a critical part of the mission for GBTA-Austin Chapter. We have a goal of being the GBTA Chapter with the highest percent of members who have earned the GTP Certification. Here is your opportunity to apply for a GTP scholarship, help us reach our Chapter goal and increase your professional profile at the same time!    

The GTP Certification is designed to raise industry standards, enhance work performance, and recognize individuals who demonstrate core competencies essential to the business travel management discipline. Apply for one of these scholarships, become part of a study group and prepare to sit for the GTP Certification exam in early fall. More information and exam dates/locations (currently all computer based) can be found here:

GBTA-Austin Chapter will award up to ten (10) scholarships to qualified members to sit for the GTP Exam in 2018. Qualified members are dues paid members who participated in a minimum of three (3) GBTA-Austin Chapter events in the past twelve (12) months. 

The fine print:  Scholarship recipients will work with our Treasurer to complete their GTP registration. Recipients will provide the Treasurer with a check for 50% of the registration fee. When the recipient passes their GTP exam, the Treasurer will destroy their check. Should the recipient not pass the exam, the Treasurer will deposit the check as payment to the Chapter for 50% of the registration fee.

Please complete the survey below by 5pm CST on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 to qualify for the GTP Certification Scholarship. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, May 1, 2018,

Thank you and good luck!
