Diversity Scholarship Fund (DSF)

As of January 26th, all of the scholarships available through the Diversity Scholarship Fund (DSF) have been awarded.

The Diversity Scholarship Fund was established to assist conference organizers in accomplishing two very important goals: [1] more effectively engaging leaders from disadvantaged communities in the conference by assisting them with covering their registration fees and some of their travel costs to participate; and [2]diversifying the conference audience in an effort to ensure that it is more reflective of our nation’s real population.
