Industry Sponsors

For many years, industry participants in OPDMC have been asking for a way to lend financial support the event.  Now there is a way to support both OPDMC and the next generation of IPM specialists!

Continuing for 2020 is the Student Travel Scholarship Program, in which industry contributions will be pooled and used to support the travel costs of student recipients to attend and participate in OPDMC.

Industry contributions will be accepted in any amount, and sponsors will be recognized in the following categories: Bronze (up to $250), Silver ($251-$500), and Gold ($500+). Contributing organizations will be recognized in the conference program, as well as in the opening and closing business meetings.

The full Terms of Reference for the scholarship program are found here .  If you have any questions, please email scholarship@opdmc.org.

If you or your organization would like to contribute to the 2020 Travel Scholarship Fund, please contact Melissa at scholarship@opdmc.org.  Contributions will be accepted until December 20, 2019.
