If you are interested in applying for a stipend, please complete a Professional Development Application form and submit by e-mail to Susan Bernardi-Bain at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants are encouraged to submit the form well in advance of the meeting/conference they plan to attend to allow ample time to process the stipend.
