RESULTS U.S. Poverty Activist Scholarship Fund

RESULTS has some funds to support our U.S. poverty focused volunteers to come to the RESULTS International Conference, July 14-17, 2018 in Washington, DC ( We specifically prioritize funding for current RESULTS volunteers who are low-income and can share their direct experiences (expertise) of poverty. We will also use funds to support volunteers who, after looking at their own financial situation, still come up a little bit short.

Please fill out the form below to request assistance. PRIORITY WILL BE GIVEN TO THOSE WHO APPLY BY APRIL 15, 2018. Please ask only for what you absolutely need to attend the Conference; we want to maximize the value of these resources to support your fellow volunteers to attend as well. Notifications of awards will be made on a rolling basis, beginning in March, until the funds are exhausted.

If you are looking for additional ways to reduce your Conference expenses, here are some ideas RESULTS volunteers have used in the past:

1. Create a "Go Fund Me" crowdsourcing page ( and ask friends, colleagues, mentors, family to help fund you to attend the Conference. On your GoFundMe pages, please be sure include the following note: "Your gift here supports me directly and is not given to RESULTS or RESULTS Educational Fund. A gift made here is not tax-deductible and you will not receive acknowledgment from the organization. If you would like to make a gift to RESULTS or RESULTS Educational Fund directly, you may go to"

2. Take Megabus ( or carpool to the Conference.

3. Use frequent flyer miles or see if a friend or relative has miles they can donate to you.

4. Consider sharing your hotel room and splitting the room rate. Grand Hyatt Hotel room rates are $219/night + tax for 1-2 people, $244/night + tax for 3 people, and $269/night + tax for 4 people (tax is approximately $15 per night). Applicants requesting scholarship assistance for hotel expenses are expected to share a room with one other person.
