For Financial Support:
Registrants are invited to utilize Fund Raising that may help with self-funding efforts. Otherwise, due to the extremely high cost of organizing, the use of various facilities, insurance, and fees, no other financial support is available through A-WOW Inc. for any travel. We suggest you check local organizations and associations such as the Lions or Rotary clubs. Other delegates have found that a search through the internet, academic scholarships, local and national sources, and even friends and family relations can also be a source of subsidy and support.
