Who is eligible?
If you are a student, unemployed individual, or employee of a small business/nonprofit organization with a budget of $5 million or less, you may apply for a scholarship to attend the annual conference. Verification of eligibility is required.
Scholarship applications are reviewed by Forum staff. Awards are based on merit and need. If you are selected for a Forum scholarship, you will be notified via email with a special registration discount code.

What happens if I am awarded a scholarship?
Scholarship awardees will be contacted by The Forum via email and given a special registration discount code. We will notify awardees on a rolling basis as applications are received and reviewed. There are a limited number of scholarships available – not all who apply will be awarded.
