What happens if I am awarded a scholarship?

Upon approval of a scholarship you will receive a special discount code by email to register online. The reduced fee Forum Scholarship registration must be paid in full prior to conference registration. Do not register prior to receiving this code. Awardees will be notified as applications are received and verified.

What if I miss the deadline?

Please consider volunteering at The Forum! This is a great way to lend a hand and be able to attend select portions of the conference at no charge. Meals and a Forum t-shirt are also provided to volunteers – it’s a lot of fun and a great way to network too.
