Scholarships of $800 are awarded to eligible first time attendees and their families. They are only for people attending a national conference for the first time. One person in the family must have Moebius syndrome and there must be a financial need for the scholarship. The scholarship will pay your Registration Fee and the Registration Fee of other family members and child care, up to the maximum of $800. After Registration Fees are paid, the remaining amount will be issued to you at the conference when you sign in and is to be used to reimburse you for travel and hotel expenses.
You may only include family members in which registration and child care do not exceed $800 in the scholarship application. If you have additional family members who wish to register, you may do that through the regular online registration, and you will be responsible for paying those costs.
To apply for a first time attendee scholarship for you (& your family), complete the following form and submit online. The scholarship cannot be used to sign up for the Monday excursion or to purchase conference t-shirts. If you are approved, you will be notified of consult appointment opportunities and sessions that you may sign up for. These are explained in the conference brochure.
