Apply for a Scholarship Today


June 24, 2014

It is our hope to make this event more affordable for agencies working directly with low-income populations, non-profits committed to promoting economic equality in communities of color, and participants of asset-building programs by offering a select number of scholarships to organizations with limited budgets.

A limited number of scholarships are available for non-profit partners in need of financial assistance. Scholarships will assist individuals with the registration fee and travel expenses, when appropriate.

At this time, there are two types of scholarships available:

  1. For Chicago residents: reduction of registration fee to $40
  2. For Illinois residents outside of the Chicago geographic area: reduced registration fee and a
    reimbursement, up to $250, for lodging and travel.

Selected applicants are expected to attend the full conference on October 8th & 9th and actively participate in the sessions. In addition, recipients must also be willing to complete a short evaluation following the completion of the event.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. No applications will be accepted after Aug ust 1, 2014.
