IDA-RMB is pleased to be able to offer scholarships towards registration fees for parents, educators and students in the fields of Education or Child Development (or other related field). This scholarship will cover conference registration fees only (a $65 fee per day scholarship fee will be required to cover materials, internet and food costs with acceptance), and does not include travel or lodging. Please note that individuals cannot receive a scholarship two years in a row.

Before applying, please check with your building, district or BOCES to see if they may be able to provide scholarship funds for you to attend this conference, so that we can include as many people as possible.

This scholarship is not applicable for:

  • Lodging
  • Any expenses other than registration fees

Please apply only if your school or business has agreed to give you time off and if you are able to cover your travel and lodging expenses, plus the daily fee.
