CSEP Designation

ILEA St. Louis CSEP Initiative

ILEA International and ILEA St. Louis strongly value the CSEP designation and want to encourage and support our members with an initiative to offer study groups and scholarships to ILEA St. Louis members who take the CSEP exam before July 30, 2017.

As this is a new initiative, the 2015/2016 ISES St. Louis Board will re-evaluate the program and make the choice to continue the program and make other changes for tests taken after July 30, 2017.

Program Details:

  1. ILEA St. Louis will offer $300 scholarships toward the $600 exam fee to up to two (2) members in good standing, applicants to be approved by the ILEA Executive Board after passing the exam.
  • Any ILEA St. Louis full member who has already taken and passed the exam is eligible for reimbursement.
  • Applicants must apply when registering for the exam.
  • Applicants must provide a copy of the CSEP acceptance letter from ILEA Headquarters as a qualifying document to receive reimbursement.
  • All applicants will be considered and Two (2) recipients will be chosen by November 1, 2016. 
  • Each recipient will receive $300 reimbursement for the exam sitting fee in check form, made out to the recipient or the recipient’s employer. The recipient is required to cash the check within 90 days of receipt.
  • Recipients may either write an article for the ILEA St. Louis newsletter or give a 5 minute presentation at a Chapter Event regarding their experience and what they learned by preparing for the exam within six months following their sitting for the exam.
