There will be no scholarships awarded this year. Please consider applying again next year.


Since 2008, our annual conference has educated and empowered hundreds of individuals with developmental disabilities, mental illness, and substance use disorders each year. We are inviting you to help us reduce stigma and discrimination associated with these areas. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be hosting a VIRTUAL conference instead of our typical in-person event.
