2023 Apraxia Kids National Conference Scholarship Application


About the Scholarship:
The Apraxia Kids National Conference is a unique educational opportunity on childhood apraxia of speech, and an unforgettable experience for all families and professionals who attend. Even though many attendees who attend describe this experience as “life-changing,” we know that not all those who would benefit from this education have the means to attend the National Conference. With this in mind, Apraxia Kids will be offering a limited number of financial scholarships to aid those who may not otherwise be able to attend the conference.

The application for scholarships to the Apraxia Kids National Conference is now open.

Applications are due February 24, 2023
Recipients will be announced by March 6, 2023

Eligibility:
Parents/Caregivers of a child diagnosed with (or suspected to have) childhood apraxia of speech are eligible for a scholarship. Priority will be given to applicants attending their first Apraxia Kids National Conference and applicants who have not received a scholarship in the past. Each scholarship covers one person. Only one scholarship per family will be awarded. Scholarships are not transferable.

Scholarship Information:
Individuals who are awarded a scholarship will receive one free conference registration for the in-person event, and are eligible to have up to $250 of appropriate conference expenses reimbursed (with original receipts) such as:

  • Hotel
  • Meals outside of the meals provided at the event (alcohol is not an allowable expense)
  • Travel (Travel reimbursement includes airfare, bus, train, car, and tolls.)

Scholarship amounts will be provided upon award notification.
