CAS/MAS Scholarships

 

Did you know that only a small percentage of industry professionals have obtained their CAS or MAS designation?  CAS stands for Certified Advertising Specialist and MAS stands for Master Advertising Specialist. For more information on this program (managed and administered by PPAI), please see PPAI's Website..

UMAPP prides itself on being able to offer a scholarship program to our members who wish to pursue their CAS or MAS designations.  There are two scholarships awarded each year,  Recipients have their choice of attending a PPAI-sponsored education program with a maximum reimbursement amount of $1,500. Staff of UMAPP members are eligible to apply.   


  • Scholarships are redeemable January - December of the following year. 

  • Visit PPAI's website to view their education events (an example is the North American Leadership Conference). 


Applicants pay for expenses and submit receipts to UMAPP for reimbursement.
