Travel Scholarships! to USSA's National Student Congress
Student leaders and organizers from across the country will gather for the 70th Annual National Student Congress (NSC) at the University of Central Florida, August 11- 14th, 2017. We are coming together to build relationships, choose a new agenda for the student movement, and make plans to institutionalize student voice and power. Throughout 4 busy days students will participate in regional meetings, debates, caucus and affiliate spaces, trainings, workshops, conference governing committees, plenary and elections for a new Board of Directors, Vice President and President.

With rising tuition, an increase in student debt, and an expensive economy we understand that many conferences and learning opportunities become financially inaccessible to many great student organizers who would greatly benefit from the space. For that reason, for the first time USSAF (United States Student Association Foundation) is providing TRAVEL SCHOLARSHIPS to student leaders who are committed to Education Justice and need financial assistance to participate in our spaces at the National Student Congress: Education Justice Training.

If interested, please submit this google form NO LATER than Wednesday, August 3rd 5 pm EST. Scholarships are limited and the convention is fast approaching.

[Please submit 1 application per person]
