The following are the scholarships and grants available this year as a benefit of your membership status within AFAN:
(3) $300 Conference-of-Your-Choice Scholarships (such as AFA, NORWAC, NCGR, SOTA, or similar conferences)
(2) $700 Full Conference Scholarships, for registration, hotel, and meal expenses at a conference of your choice
$2500 in Study Stipends. Applications will be accepted for one course or term of study online or in person, up to a maximum of $500. Eligible classes for this category are those available through a school/association/etc which offers multiple teachers or styles rather than private tutoring.
