CoSIDA Convention Attendance Grant Program

Deadline: Friday, Feb. 28, 2014

For the 2013-14 academic year, CoSIDA is proud to announce a new program that will provide financial assistance to those members who wish to attend the annual convention, but who are limited to do so due to financial constraints.

In an effort to support and encourage the annual convention participation of CoSIDA members, ten (10) attendance grants of $800 each will be awarded for the 2014 CoSIDA Convention, taking place June 8-11 in Orlando, Fla. in conjunction with NACDA and Affiliates Convention Week.

This total will go towards registration, travel and hotel accommodations. Candidates must confirm their convention attendance in advance and the selected attendees will be awarded funds after the convention on a reimbursement basis.

Following the convention, the 10 successful candidates will be asked to provide a review of their experiences. Members selected in 2014 may not apply for the grant in the future.

Please consider a worthy individual to provide them with the tremendous opportunity to join their colleagues at our annual convention.

The deadline for applications for the 2014 Convention is FRIDAY, FEB. 28, 2014.
