Conference Financial Assistance

 

Please note that all the Financial Assistance has been awarded, and that the deadline for applying for Financial Assistance has closed.

Since 2004, Nevus Outreach has been able to offer a limited amount of assistance to people who otherwise cannot attend the conference.  This has generally been in the form of one of these things:

  • Assisting with transportation
  • Waiving conference sign-up
  • Assisting with lodging

Because a limited amount of assistance is available, we will give preference to the following applicants:

  • persons who have not come to a Nevus Outreach conference before
  • persons who have not received financial assistance to attend a Nevus Outreach conference before
  • persons actively engaged in raising funds for Nevus Outreach using the Grassroots Fundraiser system

The Grassroots Fundraiser system allows people to earn credit toward conference sign-up and hotel rooms by raising money for Nevus Outreach.  Read here for more information.

Financial assistance will only be offered to people with nevi and one other person accompanying them.  We simply cannot afford to bring whole families that are larger than this, although those additional family members are encouraged to attend if possible.

In order to apply for financial assistance, fill out this simple form.  Note that you may only select one kind of financial assistance.  Please note that the deadline for applying for Financial Assistance has passed.

People applying for financial assistance will still be eligible for the Early Bird discount even though the deadline has passed, as long as they have not been to a Nevus Outreach conference before, and they have also not received financial assistance from Nevus Outreach before. If you are not sure, contact the office before you sign up.

The deadline to apply for financial assistance has been extended to March 9, 2014 with the Early Bird rates.  Applicants will be advised of the committee's decisions on April 11.  Note that transportation assistance arrangements will not be made until the applicant has signed up for the conference.

If you have any questions, feel please free to contact us.
