Our sliding scale fees are our primary scholarship program: we offer a sliding scale fee for almost all events. Please choose the amount to pay based on what you are able to offer. Those paying on the low end of the fee scale automatically receive some scholarship funds, while those paying on the high end of the scale automatically contribute some scholarship funds. You do not have to apply for a scholarship when choosing a registration option toward the low end of the scale during registration - you can just register at that level.
Further Scholarship Assistance is available for selected events: if even the low end of the sliding scale would be a financial hardship for you, then you can apply for further scholarship funds. There is no need to register for the event - just apply for a scholarship. The amount of any offered scholarship award will depend on your financial particulars.
Please note: Scholarship applications are due 2 weeks prior to the start date you wish to attend, providing adequate time to consider the application and make payment arrangements before class 1.
