Thanks to the generous support of the Riverview Foundation and donations of SERFA members, scholarships are available for those who need financial assistance to attend the SERFA Conference. Official showcase applicants are eligible for scholarships.

Scholarships cover the cost of conference registration, which includes dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Lodging and other 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). 


2019 Applications Closed

Apply for a scholarship between December 1, 2018 and 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.

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!
