Dick Banks Memorial Scholarship program

Picture of Dick Banks

This scholarship provides people who are unable to procure other financing, with registrations to either the fee-based Webinar series or to the EASI online courses. While EASI relies on fees to support our work, nevertheless, we want to share these resources as broadly as possible.

For those who did not know our valued friend, Dick Banks,

EASI can think of no better way to honor his memory than to provide scholarships to either the EASI fee-based Webinars or to the EASI online courses. We request that, where possible, you approach your institution to finance the fee-based Webinar series or the course before applying for this scholarship. (the same person will not qualify for more than 2 events in a single year.)

Because it is difficult to process requests submitted at the very last moment, we request that you submit the form below at least a week before the start of the Webinar series or the EASI online course.

First check out the schedule of fee-based Webinars or EASI courses and note the title and date for which you would like the scholarship.
