Scholarship registrations are non-transferable. However, if you are granted a scholarship and your plans change so you are no longer able to use it, please notify us as soon as possible so we can make the scholarship funds available to others. A full refund will be granted through June 5, 2024.

The conference is designed for older teens and adults who can attend sessions and engage with the material being presented. Childcare is not provided.
