Deadline for Applications: July 1st, 2010

The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) is currently offering 100 registration scholarships to battered or formerly battered women for NCADV's 14th National Conference on Domestic Violence: Changing Faces of the Movement, August 1-4, 2010 in Anaheim, CA.

General Information

Scholarships cover the costs of registration fees only. If you are selected to receive a scholarship, please know you will be responsible for financing your own transportation, accommodations, meals and other expenses for the conference.

Only women who self-identify as battered or formerly battered and are in financial need are eligible to apply for the scholarships. The scholarships are granted on an individual basis only and will not be granted to an organization. Scholarships are not transferable to another individual.

While we understand and abhor the traumatic effects of child witnessing of domestic violence, unfortunately, we are limited by the number we can award. Therefore, we must restrict these scholarships only to survivors of domestic violence in current or past romantic relationships.

If you are eligible, please complete the following application.

Applications will be accepted until June 1st, 2010 and selections will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are selected, you will be asked to verify your acceptance of the scholarship by a specified deadline which NCADV will provide you. If you do not accept the scholarship by the deadline given to you, your application will be forfeited and you will be placed on the scholarship waiting list.

Please note: there is no way to save your information and return to this form, therefore, we suggest you complete it at one time to avoid losing information.

Thank you,
