Scholarship Opportunities

BABTA supports the pursuit of professional certification through the Global Business Travel Association’s programs and educational offerings. Due to our affiliation with GBTA, GBTA Foundation (formerly Institute of Business Travel Management) and the CPC (Chapter President’s Council), we are able to offer educational scholarships for a variety of programs in addition to our local BABTA scholarships.


BABTA has committed to offering two scholarships in 2017 valued at $3,000 each.  The scholarships are for two BABTA members, one Allied member and one Direct/Corporate member, to attend the 2017 Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Convention.  This year’s GBTA Convention will be held in Boston, Massachusetts, July 15-19, 2017.  Each award can be used toward airline tickets, hotel charges, ground transportation and registration fees for the Convention.  All winners will be required to write an article describing their Convention experience for the BABTA Blog.

To apply for a scholarship, please view the eligibility requirements then click here to submit your application (you must be logged in as a member on the BABTA website to access the application).

Applications must be submitted by Friday, February 17, 2017 and notifications will be sent out by Friday, February 24, 2017.

Please contact Amanda Chorro, Scholarship Committee Chair, at should you have any questions.
