The MDF Annual Conference – which many think of as a DM family reunion – ranks among the Foundation’s oldest and most beloved traditions – and for good reason! Individuals with DM of all types and ages, their families, their providers, and the scientists studying the condition’s possible paths to treatment – all gather in one place and time to explore the latest research, discuss strategies for better living, and to end isolation through community.

The MDF Annual Conference Scholarship Program aims to provide financial support for a person living with DM and a caregiver to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience learning about research, sharing tips for maximizing daily life, and being empowered by community. Caregivers – parents, spouses, etc. – are welcome to apply on behalf of their loved one living with DM.

  • Living with DM. Scholarships may also cover one caregiver upon request.
  • First-time in-person conference attendee. To ensure awards go to those who would otherwise never be able to experience an MDF Annual Conference.
  • Financial need. Household income and member information will not be saved, stored, or shared but will be used to determine financial need.

A MDF Annual Conference Scholarship Award includes:
  • Registration for 1 person living with DM and up to 1 caregiver upon request.
  • Three nights’ stay at the conference hotel from Thursday through Sunday – a $740 value!
  • Total travel reimbursement up to $350.

Applications will be received until midnight on Thursday, May 26th. Determinations will be made by June 3rd. Early bird registration rates are available until June 19th so even those who do not receive a scholarship will still be able to register at a discounted rate.
