The International Association of Emergency Managers established the IAEM Scholarship Program to nurture, promote and develop disaster preparedness and resilience by furthering the education of students studying the field of emergency management, disaster management or a related program.

The purpose of the program is to assist the profession by identifying and developing students with the intellect and technical skills that can advance and enhance emergency management or disaster management.

The program is sustained through donations from individuals and corporations. The Scholarship Commission’s current goal is to reach $1 million in the endowment fund to ensure IAEM Scholarships into the foreseeable future.
