Thanks to the generosity of the Alvin Liben Fund, special donors, and many of our supporters, we are determined that financial difficulties will not prevent anyone from attending our Conference. Please read and follow the Scholarship Application Process precisely. (Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.)

Prior to filling out the application:

  • Determine amount needed and clearly state what scholarship funding will be used for if awarded.
  • A short personal statement using our question prompts.
  • A scanned photo ID (state issued, student ID, passport, resident card, etc.).
  • Finalized first page of your most recent tax return (with sensitive ID information, such as social security number, blacked out)


  • The deadline to submit completed applications is June 1, 2018.
  • The NSA does not provide 100% scholarships for anyone.
  • Scholarships are applied directly towards airfare, hotel costs, or registration. No cash is awarded directly to the recipient.
  • Scholarships are not applicable towards Conference ‘extras’ (Banquet, tours, NSA store, auction, etc.).
  • Priority is given to citizens/permanent residents of the United States. International attendees are welcome to apply, but the NSA will not provide invitation letters/visa documentation.
  • Incomplete or late applications will not be accepted.

Cancellations & Refunds

Should your circumstances change and you find yourself unable to attend, please contact us immediately. Cancellations received on/before May 31, 2018, will result in a full refund minus a cancellation fee of $100.00 to cover our costs incurred related to your registration. Cancellations received on/after June 1, 2018, are ineligible for a refund of any amount.
