One goal of the IPMA-HR Oregon Chapter is to help you–our members–continue your professional development through course work, training and/or certification. Each fiscal year the Oregon Chapter Board allocates available funds to the Scholarship Program. These funds are distributed to Oregon Chapter members who apply for them and meet the general requirements for disbursement as listed on the application form.
