Scholarship Application

ANCA has two scholarship opportunities for the 2023 Summit:

  • Community Scholarships are awarded to senior management staff who demonstrate the greatest need and potential impact the Summit will have on their position; these scholarships provide up to $600. Community Scholarships are competitive, and priority is given to applicants with small budgets and first-time attendees. This scholarship is not available to applicants who have received two or more scholarships in the past.
  • Equity Scholarships cover $1000 of Summit registration and travel for attendees who identify as part of or work with underrepresented groups (e.g., urban centers, rural centers, BIPOC, Differently-abled, LGBTQIA+ members). This scholarship is for participants attending an in-person Summit for the first time. 

The scholarship application deadline is May 31, 2023, and award decisions will be made by June 9, 2023.
