Note:  To better serve our membership, PMINJ is in the process of exploring alternatives to the scholarship program.  Therefore, the program will be suspended for the 2017/2018 academic year.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause for our members. 

However, Scholarships awarded in previous years will continue to be supported through renewals.
