DSC Conference Scholarship Fund

 

Did you know that the DSC provides scholarships for members to attend a local or national Down syndrome or related conference? The DSC is excited to announce our new Conference Scholarship Fund! This year there is $5,000 available to help DSC members attend local and national conferences. Here are the details:

 

  • You must be a member of the Down Syndrome Community of Puget Sound (DSC).
  • A scholarship may be used for a local or national Down syndrome or related conference.
  • Recipient must share highlights and/or learnings with the DSC Board.
  • Scholarship will range between $100-$500 per person/family, per year and per event. Proof of registration is required.
  • The scholarship budget is set and renewed annually. Applications are reviewed bi-monthly, and once a scholarship has been approved, the money will be dispersed.
  • DSC will issue one check for the scholarship amount approved, once proof of registration is received.
