People sitting and laughing with one another

AASHE is pleased to offer attendance scholarships for those in need of financial assistance to attend the AASHE Conference and Expo.

What the Scholarship Covers

Scholarship recipients will receive up to the cost of a full conference registration (valued at US$250 for students and US$575 for regular attendees, the price of onsite registration). Please note that the scholarship does not cover travel, hotel, and incidental expenses. Recipients will be notified ahead of the conference.
