Scholarship Competition Announcement

Supply Chain, Logistics, Manufacturing, and Analytics

Application Deadline: November 9, 2018

The Southern California CSCMP Roundtable is awarding several scholarships to students in the fields of logistics, manufacturing, supply chain, and analytics. The Dave Evans Memorial Scholarship ($5,000) will be awarded to one distinguished undergraduate or graduate student. In addition, several scholarships of $2,000 each are available. For either scholarship type, students must be attending a Southern California (community) college or university (Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino or Ventura Counties).  Students should be pursuing undergraduate or graduate studies in business, engineering, economics, or public policy, and have a demonstrated interest in a career in supply chain management, logistics, manufacturing, data analytics or a closely related field.


CSCMP will disburse the scholarship amounts directly to the winners’ schools, for payment of the winners’ educational expenses. Applicants who have previously received a scholarship award from the Southern California Roundtable are not eligible to apply.  However, those who have received travel awards for the CSCMP EDGE Conference are still eligible. Applicants must be current CSCMP members.
