(Manhattan Beach, CA - February 25, 2019) -- For the second year in a row, through a special partnership with the Yale School of Management, the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) is thrilled to announce a scholarship program aimed at allowing one IBPA member the opportunity to attend the Yale Publishing Course's Leadership Strategies in Book Publishing (July 28 - August 2, 2019 in New Haven, CT) free-of-charge.
Impressed by the commitment to professionalism displayed by IBPA membership, Yale has agreed to offer this stand-alone scholarship exclusively to current IBPA members. The scholarship value is $5,850. It covers tuition, books, materials, and meals. It does not cover travel or hotel costs.
While attending the Yale Publishing Course, IBPA members will take a step back to see the publishing industry "big picture." Attendees leave energized, focused, and better prepared to lead their organizations into the future. If you're a leader in the indie publishing community, we want to hear from you! This scholarship recognizes independent publishing professionals in all areas of the business who demonstrate inventive, initiative-driven leadership impacting their organization and their work in independent publishing.
DEADLINE TO APPLY: APRIL 12, 2019
