CWR Conference 2023: International “Come and See” Scholarship

UPDATE: The conference scholarship application period is now closed.

CWR is excited to offer its international “Come and See” scholarship for this year’s conference in St. Louis (October 10-13, 2023). The scholarship is available to international sister and lay communicators who are engaged in the ministry of communication or who communicate on behalf of a congregation in areas such as Vocations or Justice. We also welcome applicants discerning how their congregation, federation, or province may begin or revitalize its communication operations.

The scholarship includes admission to the CWR conference, four nights stay at the conference hotel, and a six-month trial membership to CWR. Recipients are responsible for the cost of travel to the conference and a travel visa, if needed.

All sisters and lay staff are welcome to apply including applicants who will already be in the United States and able to attend the conference before returning to their international (outside the U.S. or Canada) ministry site. 

If you know an international communicator who could benefit from attending the CWR Conference, please share the online application with them. Applicants cannot be a current or former CWR member. The deadline for international conference scholarship applications is June 30, 2023.
