Deadline (January 28, 2013) has closed. We have exhausted limited resources.
Thanks to anticipated funding from cooperating organizations, we expect to offer a limited number of partial scholarships consisting of either or both conference registration and lodging at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel. Preference will go to those selected as conference presenters and those working in community-based agencies or engaged in scientific research (including graduate students preparing for such careers). We also seek to achieve a diverse audience for this conference.
To apply for a scholarship, email a request to Kathie Gorham at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your application should describe your work and your need for partial assistance. Please note for which preference category(ies) you qualify: (1) conference presenter; (2) working in a community-based organization; (3) engaged in scientific research; (4) graduate student in a field of study pertaining to alcohol policy (although, first, please exhaust potential stipend resources at your own institution of higher education).
Please state if you are requesting a conference registration scholarship (fee waiver) or lodging scholarship (guest room at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel for up to three nights beginning on Tuesday, April 2, 2013) or both.
Include with your application:
1. Full contact information so we can reach you quickly with our determination.
2. Statement (file attachment to email) from your home organization or other source of travel support that, if awarded a partial scholarship, you will have transportation support to and from Washington, DC.
The deadline for scholarship applications is Monday, January 28, 2013, however earlier submission is advised. We will begin announcing awards, based on available resources, on a progressive basis, i.e., as requests received, especially for those in the conference presenter preference category.
If any questions or concerns, please contact Kathie Gorham by email at email@example.com.
