Policies and Procedures for
CSUN Conference Scholarship Application
For more than thirty years, the Center on Disabilities at California State University, Northridge has contributed hundreds of scholarships to people with disabilities and/or their guardians. The demand is so great that scholarships must be limited to those who have never had the opportunity to participate in the conference before.
GENERAL CONFERENCE REGISTRATION FEE WAIVER
A scholarship is an Attendee registration fee waiver for the applicant. Recipients may attend all general sessions, exhibit halls and other activities open to Attendees during the conference. Individuals receiving scholarships are responsible for their own expenses (rooms, meals, transportation, personal care attendants, etc.)
CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES
Scholarships Are For First Time Attendees Only!
A person with disabilities is the target audience. It is clear that the scholarship should “make the difference” for the person to attend. Please make no assumptions about receiving a scholarship until you receive an “acceptance” or “regrets” letter from the Center on Disabilities.
PROCEDURES FOR APPLYING
Please complete the form on the following page prior to the deadline.
