Getting Funds to Attend

Conferences are a great way to stay up to date on the latest developments in your profession and network with others to further increase your skills and knowledge.

Every year, a limited number of scholarships are offered to attend National and Regional conferences, but many more people apply than there are scholarships available – so only a few people receive them. If you didn’t receive a scholarship for a favorite conference, don’t despair. There are many ways to raise funds or share the costs of attending a conference.
