AUCD places great importance on having a diverse group of participants at the AUCD Conference. We seek to make the conference and all information presented as accessible as possible to as many people as possible, and recognize that cost can often be a barrier to attending. AUCD features significantly reduced registration for students, individuals with disabilities, and family members of individuals with disabilities. As funding allows, we also offer a limited number of travel scholarships; learn about the opportunities available this year and see if you qualify to apply.

2016 AUCD Trainee Scholarships

AUCD is pleased to announce the availability of 20 trainee travel scholarships of up to $500 each AND 4 trainee volunteer scholarships of up to $500 each to support AUCD Trainees in attending the AUCD Conference. Scholarships are available to current trainees and former trainees presenting work conducted while a trainee.

2016 Emerging Leader Scholarships

AUCD anticipates being able to fund a portion of the travel and the main conference registration fee for two to three emerging leaders: individuals with disabilities, family members of individuals with disabilities, and early career professionals with 5 years or less experience in the network (not current trainees).
