Scholarship Program

Since the conference’s inception, registration scholarships have been offered, providing women in need a chance to experience the conference.  Many times this opportunity has proven to be a life-changing event for the recipient.

This year there were a record number of applications and nominations.  Of these applicants and nominees, the Scholarship Selection Committee, comprised of Advisory Board members, had the difficult task of selecting 167 individuals to award registration scholarships.

The scholarships were funded by the generosity of foundations and individuals.
