WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE A SCHOLARSHIP SUPPORTER?
Some organizations and individuals show their support by underwriting the registration feeds, travel costs and/or lodging for those that may not have the resources to send people to this important meeting.
No amount is too large or small to be a help! While general gifts are most helpful, if you would like to dedicate your funding toward a specific group of people or region, we can ensure your funds are matched to the right applicants.
