National Conference Financial Aid

Two separate scholarship funds are available for families to apply for financial assistance to attend the FIRST National Conference-Providence.

 

 


Conference participants needing financial assistance may apply for funding from both financial aid funds.  The recipient of the Stephanie Turner scholarship will be awarded by February 15, 2020.  That recipient will then have their application removed from consideration for the FIRST National Conference Financial Aid fund.

*Do not complete registration forms to attend the conference if you are requesting financial assistance.  Applications will be dated upon receipt and the registration rates applicable when your application is received will be applied after the process has been completed.
