NACAS Central Regional Conference Scholarships

NACAS Central is committed to helping members of the Central Region take advantage of the NACAS Central/West Connect & Exchange CX by offering scholarships to help offset the cost of attendance. These scholarships for the NACAS Central/West Connect & Exchange CX have been made possible by the financial support of NACAS Central Region. It is one way the region can give back and support the membership initiatives of the Association.

Awards are based on the financial need, membership status, contributions to the field, and potential to give back to the profession. Scholarships are awarded to cover the full conference registration fee, accommodations, and transportation only, up to a maximum of $1,875.

If you are selected to receive a scholarship, please know that you will be responsible for any meals not part of the general conference and other incidental expenses for the conference. Please note that accommodations and transportation must be arranged with a NACAS Central representative. A minimum of two scholarships will be given for the 2019 Connect & Exchange CX conference.
