Student Involvement & Scholarships

Hospitality Students! Scholarships Available

We are pleased to announce the new Marisa Federico Memorial Student Scholarship, in addition to the Don Lawrence Memorial Scholarship.

Prior to losing her battle with cancer, Marisa Federico, former Director of National Sales at the Boston Convention Marketing Center, was an industry powerhouse and a true warrior in the battle against breast cancer. This scholarship will keep her spirit alive and spread her message of hope.

Don Lawrence was an icon in the Boston hotel market. This scholarship honors Don, the Chapter’s founding member, and his spirit of commitment to PCMA New England.

Each $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to a student in a relevant field of study (i.e., meeting planning, destination management, hospitality management) who is enrolled in a degree program at a two- or four-year institution of higher education in the New England Area.

2020 details are available at the links below.  Applicants will be considered for both scholarships and need only submit one application.  Contact us at newengland@pcma.org with any questions.
