Conference Scholarships

RMFW is pleased to offer a limited number of scholarships to help members attend conference who would otherwise be unable to join us. We also accept donations to help fellow members attend conference. Scholarships will be awarded to RMFW members in good standing on the basis of stated financial need. Scholarships will cover the regular conference fee, not including hotel room costs or add-ons. The Application period is open June 1 through June 30. You must be logged in to the RMFW website to access the scholarship application.
