Student / Trainee Scholarship Application
Deadline to Apply: 8/17/16
GLMA is committed to ensuring students and trainees—from across the health professions—are able to attend the Annual Conference. Therefore, we are able to provide a limited number of scholarships to help offset the cost of attending the GLMA 34th Annual Conference on LGBT Health, September 14-17, 2016, in St. Louis, MO.
Scholarship recipients will have their conference registration fee waived. In exchange for the scholarship, recipients are required to assist with conference duties – usually serving as a monitor during workshop or plenary sessions, staffing the registration desk or similar tasks – for up to six hours during the conference.
Scholarships for nursing students may be inclusive of the GLMA Nursing Summit and may require an additional time commitment of 1-2 hours on the day of the Summit.
How to Apply
Students of all health professional disciplines are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be students/trainees currently enrolled (part or full-time) in an undergraduate or graduate/professional degree program with plans to pursue a career in the health professions.
A refundable $50 deposit will be required to hold your place. After being selected, the deposit can be made by completing conference registration online and selecting the "Student Scholarship Deposit" under registration type. The deposit can be provided by check or credit card. This deposit will be refunded to you once you have completed conference duties that have been assigned to you.
Individuals applying for the scholarship must complete an online application available here.
