About the Conference Scholarship Program

The National Patient Education Conference brings hope to those who thought they were alone in the fight against scleroderma.  Thanks to the generous support of many donors and chapters, conference scholarships will again be available for the 2020 National Patient Education Conference, which takes place July 17-19, in Bellevue, Washington.

Scholarship Eligibility

  • Scholarships are only available to the following individuals: adults living with scleroderma, children living with scleroderma, and parent caregivers of minor children living with scleroderma.
  • Only one scholarship application will be accepted per family. Funds can only be used for one member of the family unless the application is for a minor child with scleroderma who must be accompanied by a parent and/or guardian. The scholarship would then be given to the minor child living with scleroderma and ONE parent and/or guardian.
  • Previous conference scholarship award recipients are ineligible to apply until three (3) years after the year of the initial award, e.g., if you attended the 2018 conference with a scholarship, you cannot apply again until the 2021 conference.

Application Deadline:  March 18, 2020 by 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
Completed applications, along with the required financial documentation, must be received by the National Office by 5 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
