A limited number of scholarships are available to conference participants. In order to provide assistance to as many kinfolk as possible, scholarships will not fully cover travel costs and all scholarship applicants are required to contribute towards their conference registration. Most scholarships awarded will be partial scholarships, to include either partial airfare/travel or shared lodging for two nights. Scholarship recipients may also receive a reduced conference registration rate.
Scholarship recipients are required to attend all conference activities and be present for all days of the conference.
Scholarships will be awarded at the discretion of the conference organizers. Factors taken into consideration include: financial need, geography, underrepresented communities. Applicants will be notified starting February 15th, 2016.
