Scholarships to the Conference on Ending Homelessness

The window to apply for a scholarship to the 2019 conference has now closed.

Those who applied for a scholarship will be notified between July 31 - August 16 whether they have been selected for an award. (Most who were not selected for a scholarship this year, or who have been selected for the wait list, have already been notified. If you haven't heard back from us yet, it's likely because you are on the priority list for a scholarship. We are waiting on final approval and will follow up with you as soon as possible.)

Last year, we received 255 applications and awarded 47 scholarships thanks to our generous sponsors. We welcome scholarship applications from anyone who needs financial assistance in order to attend the conference. Priority is given to:

  • Individuals who have personal experience with homelessness or housing instability;
  • Service providers who work for organizations with limited training budgets;
  • People advocating in their communities;
  • A limited number of scholarships for people new to the conference; and
  • A limited number of scholarships for Resident Action Project members and/or graduates of the Emerging Advocates Program.
