PMP® Exam Prep Scholarship Program
for Unemployed Project Managers
Having your PMP® certification can make a huge impact with a potential employer, especially given today's competitive job market. RMC understands how difficult and expensive it can be to upgrade your project management skills—especially for those who are unemployed. In support of the profession of Project Management, as well as those whose careers depend upon it, between now and the end of 2009 RMC will award five (5) student scholarships per month. Scholarship recipients may choose from one of the following study options:
Complimentary registration in RMC’s 2-day PMP® Exam Prep course (a $1,450 value)
Complimentary registration in RMC’s PMP® Exam Prep Online course (a $988 value)
A $1450 credit toward RMC’s 4-Day Accelerated PMP® course
To be eligible for the scholarships, applicants must:
1. Have at least 5 years of full-time experience in the discipline of Project Management.
2. Have been unemployed without a full paycheck or severance package for at least 60 consecutive days.
3. Be currently unemployed due to a layoff, a downsizing or project/department elimination. Note that final candidates will be asked to provide proof of unemployment.
4. Perform no more than 15 hours per week of contract consulting.
5. Be a US Resident.
