PARTIAL SCHOLARSHIPS VIA A RANDOMLY SELECTED POOL FOR LIMITED INCOME INDIVIDUALS: A small number of partial scholarships are available for limited-income individuals. They will be randomly chosen from a pool three weeks prior to the conference based on the remaining spaces availability. Applicants must submit a description of their financial situation, including why they cannot pay the regular conference rate, as well as how they will use the information obtained during the conference, to the ITRC to determine if you are eligible to apply for the pool at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Note only 2-3 people will be selected and as of 9/13/17 there are already 10 applicants in the pool).
STUDENT REGISTRATION: A small number of partial scholarships for full time undergraduate and graduate students are also available. Student registration requires proof of full time school attendance, as well all the other information about financial condition and how you will use the information obtained at the conference described above in the section on partial scholarships. Students with full or 3/4 time professional jobs are not eligible for scholarships as this is for students with very limited income. Submit your proposal to the ITRC to determine if space is still available at: email@example.com
CARBON TRAVEL OFFSETS : People will be coming to the conference from many states in the Pacific Northwest. We encourage everyone to use public transportation and to offset the carbon emissions generated by their travel to the event. One of the best and easiest ways to do this is through our friends at the Bonneville Environmental Foundation, who offer very credible and effective offsets.
