​Financial Support for Attendance 

Individuals may apply for as many awards for which they qualify, but may receive a maximum of one award for this conference. The number of awards provided and the dollar amounts of each will be based on available funding. Awards are meant to offset a portion of the registration, travel, and subsistence expenses incurred by attending this conference.
