Scholarships to SERFA


Thanks to the generous donations of SERFA members and the generous decision of the SERFA Board, scholarships are available for those who need financial assistance to attend SERFA. 

Scholarships cover the cost of registration only; lodging and meals are not included. 

Scholarship applicants are considered using several factors, including:

  • Applicant's reason for wanting to attend the conference
  • Ability to bring a special value to the conference
  • Enrollment in an educational institution
  • Previous conference attendance

SERFA supports a needs-based scholarship. The scholarship requires that applicants attest that registering for the conference would be a financial burden to such a degree that they could not otherwise attend. Scholarships are awarded one-time only. Recipients  must reside in a SERFA state and attend the entire conference (Thurs - Sun). 

Scholarship Application are Closed

The last day to apply is February 28. Decisions will be made by March 15. Applicants will be notified by email. Applicants who do not secure a scholarship may register at the super early bird FAI member rate.

Note: Donations will not appear in the shopping cart; these payments are handled separately. As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. We appreciate your generosity!
