ATIA 2020 Conference Scholarship Program

ATIA offers a Scholarship Program to assist individuals with disabilities, family members or individuals in financial need to attend the conference. The ATIA 2020 Conference will take place January 28 – February 1, 2020 in Orlando, FL. There are a limited number of scholarships available. Applicants should complete the form below which may include uploading references from an educational institution, assistive technology professional or an AT service agency. Scholarships are for the conference registration fees; unfortunately ATIA is not able to provide financial assistance with travel or accommodation expenses. The deadline to apply is Friday, November 1, 2019. Applicants will be notified by email after applications have been reviewed by the Conference Committee in late November. If you have any questions regarding the Scholarship Program, please contact scholarship@atia.org.
