2021 ASBPE Young Leaders Scholarship Application
To apply for the scholarship, please read the guidelines and fill out the application form below. The submission deadline for all materials is 11:59 p.m., Central time, February 5, 2021.

The ASBPE Young Leaders Scholarship has been created to foster interest in the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) by younger B2B editors, freelancers, designers, and videographers who are advancing in their B2B media careers. The scholarship is sponsored annually by the ASBPE Foundation, and allows younger professionals – who might otherwise be unable – to attend ASBPE's National Conference. The 2021 conference will be May 13-14 at Pinstripes in Chicago, and includes the National Azbee Awards Banquet.

The Young Leaders Scholarships are open to all business editors, including print and web, as well as B2B freelancers, designers and videographers. Scholarships pay the cost to attend the national conference, including registration fees and hotel room costs. Transportation, non-conference meals, and other incurred costs are the responsibility of the winners or their publishing companies.

Applicants must meet the following qualifications:
> Be 30 years of age or younger (on or about February 5, 2021)
> Have worked at least two years in a B2B media role for a business-to-business publication
> Be sponsored by their publication’s chief editor
> Plan to continue in the business press as a career
> Not be a previous ASBPE Young Leaders Scholarship winner
