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. Official showcase applicants are eligible for scholarships.

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 applications will open on December 1, 2018 and close on January 31, 2019. 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 rate that corresponds to their FAI member status until February 28.
