Scholarship Application

Scholarship Details: Scholarships are available for up to $60 for one day conference attendance and up to $100 for full conference attendance. Scholarships money is awarded upon completion of approximately 3-5 hours of volunteer time depending on your scholarship amount. There are volunteer activities that take place prior, during or after the conference and types of task are listed in the online form. You will be notified of your specific task and volunteer time prior to the conference. 

Decisions will be based on need and quality of the application. We always receive more applications than funds available and strongly consider the quality and effort put into responses.

IF APPLYING AS AN ORGANIZATION: Please fill out ONE online application for the whole organization (see specific questions for applying as an organization).

To allow for scholarship to go to multiple organizations, we ask that you request no more than $60 for one day conference attendees and up to $100 for full weekend conference attendees for each person part of your group.
