Willmoore H. Kendall Scholarship

The Willmoore H. Kendall Scholarship was created by the Foundation in 2001 in memory of CMAA Past President, Bill Kendall. Valued at more than $10,000 per recipient, this scholarship helps club managers in their pursuit of the Certified Club Manager (CCM) designation. To date, 54 club managers have been awarded a Kendall Scholarship. Twenty-one of those recipients have already received their CCM and the rest are actively working toward that goal!

If you’ve thought about pursuing your CCM, let us help you! A Kendall Scholarship pays the tuition costs associated with all of the Business Management Institute (BMI) courses needed for certification eligibility:

Qualified applicants must be:

  • a member of CMAA;
  • an assistant manager;
  • committed to a career in the club industry;
  • actively pursuing the CCM designation;
  • have at least one BMI course remaining to complete; and
  • nominated for the scholarship by their CMAA chapter.

The application packet is available on our website. Completed applications are due to your chapter for a nomination by November 1. Chapters will then be required to submit the applications with a letter of support to the Foundation by December 1.  All applications are reviewed by The Club Foundation Allocation Committee and all applicants are notified of their decision in mid-January. Applications are evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Management Experience (Note: internships are not calculated as part of this score);
  • CMAA Chapter and Community Activities;
  • Quality of your essay;
  • General Manager Letter of Recommendation;
  • Club Member Letter of Recommendation;
  • Overall Quality.

Let us help you achieve your career goals! Apply for a Kendall Scholarship this year!
