Support Student Scholarship and Learning
Conference travel and registration grants

activist work to peers and professionals. Conferences also provide
opportunities for supplemental and extracurricular learning opportunities,
connections between classroom learning and professional pursuits and valuable
networking and leadership opportunities.
Full-time student scholarships
Help a full-time student support their studies. Scholarships help pay for tuition, fees and book costs

students support themselves independently through full-time work. Help a
part-time student cover tuition, fees and book costs.
