Do you need assistance paying for costs associated with preparing for
the CAE exam? Consider applying for a CAE scholarship from the
Association Forum Foundation or Million Dollar Round Table.
Association Forum Foundation Scholarship: Sponsored by Johnson Lambert LLP
Designed to help aspiring CAEs at Chicago associations cover the
costs of studying for the CAE exam, this scholarship gives recipients an
award covering the costs of the CAE application fee and CAE
Study Course registration, as well as assistance with standard CAE study
materials. Candidates who are from populations underrepresented in the
association management industry are encouraged to apply. Scholarship
Award: up to $1,000.
Million Dollar Round Table John J. Prast CAE Scholarship
This scholarship was established in the name of the Million Dollar
Round Table's retired chief executive officer, John J. Prast, CAE. Prast
was an association professional for 37 years who was committed to
excellence and strongly supported the value of the CAE. The goal of this
scholarship is to honor Prast’s contributions to the industry,
demonstrate Million Dollar Round Table’s support of both the CAE
designation and the Association Forum’s commitment to the designation,
and help an aspiring CAE candidate achieve this professional goal. This
award covers the cost of the CAE application fee, CAE Study Course
registration, and assistance with standard CAE study materials. Current
employees of the Million Dollar Roundtable are not eligible for this
scholarship. Scholarship Award: up to $1,250
To be eligible for a CAE scholarship, you must:
- Be a current Association Forum member.
- Appear to meet the eligibility requirements to apply for the CAE designation.
- Demonstrate financial need based on your organizational, not personal finances.
Current employees of the Million Dollar
Round Table are not eligible for the John J. Prast Scholarship, but

Candidates are required to complete and submit the Association Forum CAE Scholarship Application,
and provide a letter of support from their immediate supervisor. All
candidates will automatically be considered for both scholarships. We
are currently accepting applications for the Spring 2016 CAE process.
