Scholarships to SERFA


Thanks to the generous donations of SERFA members, 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 offers needs-based scholarships. 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 (Thursday - Saturday). 

Apply Through January 31

The last day to apply is January 31. Decisions will be made by February 15. Applicants will be notified by email. Applicants who do not secure a scholarship may register at the super early bird FAI member rate until February 28.

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!
