The number of scholarships awarded will depend on the availability of donations received to the scholarship fund and the number of qualified applications received.
Scholarships are available for adult patients, children with scleroderma, and parent caregivers for minor children with scleroderma.
Only ONE scholarship application will be accepted per family. Funds can only be used for one member of the family unless the application is for a minor child with scleroderma who must be accompanied by a parent and/or guardian.
Previous conference scholarship award recipients are ineligible to apply until three (3) years after the year of the initial award, i.e, if you attended the 2012 conference with a scholarship, you cannot apply again until the 2015 conference.
Must be a current paid member of the Scleroderma Foundation.
Scholarship award funds will be applied first to conference registration costs, second to hotel costs for up to two nights, and third to travel expenses, (i.e., if you receive a $1,200 scholarship, the cost of registration, hotel, and travel will be deducted. Any remaining balance may then be used for reimbursement of miscellaneous expenses such as meals not to exceed the balance. Additional information provided upon notification of a scholarship award). All travel arrangements must be made through the Scleroderma Foundation National Office.
