To be considered for this opportunity, please complete this form & submit it no later than August 25th, 2011. A committee will review all applications, make a selection, and notify the recipient no later than September 15th, 2011. Once notified, the recipient is expected to register for AASL before the deadline for advance registration ends on September 29th. Applicants who were already planning to attend AASL and have already preregistered are also eligible for this scholarship.
