We're serious about high-quality PD.

$500 can be awarded to your division if you plan to offer a professional development opportunity at a division meeting. This stipend can be applied toward the cost of a special speaker.

Stretch your dollars! Work with nearby divisions to host a joint meeting and apply for the funds together. MESPA can help advertise your division meeting to boost attendance.

Division leaders: Complete the division stipend application and contact the MESPA office if you have questions!
