A scholarship fund has been created by the Prairie Star District Board to subsidize attendance at Annual Conferences for those who could not otherwise attend.
Your voluntary contributions to this fund are much appreciated. Every dollar you contribute, even one dollar, will help another UU attend next year’s conference. You can contribute by adding a gift when you register for the conference or to contribute without registering go to Annual Conference A La Carte.
Thanks to individual contributions from members of congregations all over the District, we are able to give a limited number of scholarships covering half the registration fee (adult scholarship will be $70, young adult $40, and youth $25) to help offset the cost of attending the Prairie Star District Annual Conference. These scholarships are available only to members of District congregations who are in financial need. The scholarships are intended to increase financial accessibility increase diversity build commitment of youth and young adults encourage seminarians to attend and encourage denominational awareness among congregational leaders. A scholarship application form is available in three formats: Fill out the online Application Form or Download the Application Form (in PDF Format — 30KB) to print, complete, and mail in, or Download the Application Form (in Microsoft Word Format — 50KB) to complete and email back as an attachment. The first round of scholarships will be awarded based on applications received as of noon on February 23, 2010. If funds are still available, additional scholarships will be awarded after that date. First round recipients will be notified by email on or before Tuesday, March 2, 2010. Scholarship recipients must register and pay the full registration fee. Scholarship checks will be distributed at the Annual Conference.
