NAFDMA SCHOLARSHIP FUND: The purpose of the fund is to provide assistance to those who would benefit from attendance at a NAFDMA event. It is not limited to current members, but to take advantage of the scholarship, the recipient must become a member of NAFDMA before applying for scholarship funding. A scholarship will cover 50% of the event registration fee.
Generally, the intention of the scholarship fund is to allocate 25% of the annual funds to the ALR, 25% to the AFT, and the remaining 50% to the Convention. The annual convention will be the “end of the cycle” for the scholarship “year” and will be the time designated for fundraising to replenish the account. If the percentage allocated to that event is not used in full, the remaining funds will roll over to the next event.
Priority for awards will be given to existing members or those who have been referred to the scholarship program by a member or service provider. The referral will be noted through a question on the application asking how the applicant knew to apply. The initial deadline to apply for use of funds will be two weeks prior to the Early Bird Registration deadline of the event. Applications can be accepted after that time, but initial applications will have priority.
