2023 Ohio Regional Council Student Leadership Conference Grant Program

Hello Students!

We would like to invite you to apply for this year’s grant from the Ohio Regional Council of IMA to help you attend the 2023 IMA Student Leadership Conference in Detroit, MI!  For more information about this event, please go to

The Ohio Regional Council of IMA, includes the Pittsburgh, PA chapter and any student chapter tied to an Ohio chapter (e.g. IU East as part of the Dayton Chapter).  ORC, through this grant program, wants to assist as many students as possible to attend the annual student leadership conference. Grant recipients will become part of a longstanding tradition of Ohio region accounting students who have attended this valuable conference thanks to the ORC.

This year, the ORC Grant is set at $250.

Conference registration for student members is $250 if registered before October 21, 2023.  If you are not an IMA Student Member, yet, the registration is $275 and will then provide you a year of IMA Membership for just $25!

Hotel rooms are designed to house up to four students per room.  We are not specifically pairing students, but we may be able to put you in touch with other students that may be interested in sharing rooms to help decrease the cost of attending the conference.

The ORC hopes that the conference will inspire you to be active in IMA through your student or your local, professional IMA chapter.  Ways to get involved and capitalize on your experience include joining your local chapter board, organizing a student chapter on your campus, or attending your local chapter meetings.  Leaders in IMA often form long-term relationships, connect with colleagues from a variety of backgrounds, and enjoy themselves at IMA local and regional events.

You can link to the application form below, and you can also read testimonials from previous attendees.

Thank you for your application and enthusiasm about the IMA Annual Student Conference in Detroit, MI  November 9-11, 2023.
