#3 Don’t own a pair of golf shoes or a set of golf clubs and there’s a very good reason why not.
#2 Connect “green” with your wallet, but you could always use more.
#1 Are not good at golf, but you’re a pro at networking
MBE Business Executive Scholarship Program
Has there been a course or training program you’ve been meaning to take, one that you think could really help you or your company grow or develop, but you just haven’t had the resources?
This is your opportunity! The MBE Business Executive Scholarship Program may be able to pay the full or partial costs for you to gain some training of direct benefit to the growth of your company. All you need to do is complete and return the scholarship application by May 31st. Preference is given to those MBEs active in HMSDC so that they can share with others what they learn.
HMSDC corporate members support the Scholarship program by donating scholarship funds. 2014 scholarships will be presented at the Council’s Scholarship & Emerging-10 Awards Luncheon on July 24 at the Omni Houston. All applicants will be notified prior to the luncheon as to whether they have been selected as scholarship recipients. We hope that you will be among the recipients.
