The conference organizers are committed to supporting scholarly research, training and education opportunities in global social work.  To help facilitate the participation of individuals from low-resource areas we are in the process of trying to secure funding for a limited number of scholarships for individuals who have had a paper accepted for presentation at the conference and are coming from a developing country*.   Due to the questionable nature of scholarships, and the limited number of if they do become available, participants are strongly encouraged to seek other funding.  If you wish to apply for a possible scholarship, please check the “Scholarship” box on the registration form to be considered.
*Developing Countries are as defined by World Bank.
