Scholarship recipients will be approved by the ALFN’s CEO and will be notified of application approval or denial as soon as possible, or within 30-90 days prior to the event.  If there are multiple individuals applying for scholarships within your organization, we will need to receive a completed scholarship application from each individual prior to approving or denying any scholarships for your company at any ALFN events.

Scholarship recipients are required to arrange your travel so that you are in attendance during the entire conference you are receiving scholarship funds to attend.  WILLPOWER is Wednesday, May 1, 9 AM - 7 PM.  IDEA Summit starts on Wednesday, May 1, 4 PM and ends on Thursday, May 2, 2 PM. ANSWERS starts on Sunday, July 14, 5:30 PM and ends on Wednesday, July 17, 10 AM.  INTERSECT is Wednesday, November 20, 8:30 AM - 6 PM.

All scholarship levels require upfront payment of the event registration fee ($250 WILLPOWER, $200 IDEA Summit, $595 ANSWERS, $0 INTERSECT), and other travel accommodations which you should arrange and pay for on your own.  Alternatively, ALFN can provide you a comp code to use for your registration fee, but will require a credit card on file which will only be charged if you don’t cancel within 8 days of the event start date or if you violate any of the scholarship or event policies (referenced in the Scholarship Policy). Approved scholarship amounts will be refunded to you by check reimbursement within 4-6 weeks after the conclusion of the conference upon receipt of your documentation (including receipts) and reimbursement request.  Reimbursement is dependent on the recipient’s full conference attendance and availability to ALFN members during all scheduled conference sessions, meals/receptions, group activities and any other scheduled conference events.

An All-Inclusive Scholarship (if approved) includes 1 complimentary registration, 1 complimentary networking activity (ANSWERS only), group hotel room reservation on the peak nights of the conference (only available for those individuals attending from out of town more than a 1-hour drive from the group hotel), ground transportation credit (up to $120 max at ANSWERS, $50 max for other events), airfare credit (up to $450 max).
