Every year, scholarship recipients enrich us with their curiosity and creativity.

There are a number of scholarships available, including the Harold Shapiro Memorial Geezer scholarship, which is available for applicants over the age of 50.

Work study recipients hold certain roles or tasks to deepen our time together and keep things running smoothly while participating in all the conference has to offer.
