UPDATE: Conference scholarship applications are now closed.

CWR’s conference scholarship program has been renamed in honor of our late friend Caelie Haines. Caelie, who passed away in the summer of 2023, was a CWR Board member, 2024 Conference Co-Chair, and Director of Communications for the School Sisters of Notre Dame Atlantic-Midwest Province. Caelie was a dedicated member of CWR and an enthusiastic advocate for the CWR conference, so it is only fitting that her memory is honored in a program that enables recipients to attend the conference when they would not otherwise be able to do so.

For October’s 2024 conference in Chicago, CWR offers both a member scholarship and an international “come-and-see” scholarship open to non-members. Scholarship recipients receive complimentary conference registration and lodging at the conference venue, the Renaissance Chicago Glenview Suites Hotel. Scholarship applications were accepted through May 1.

CWR will host its milestone 30th Anniversary Conference October 8-11. Register now and join us as we gather to “Navigate the Winds of Change” on Chicago’s North Shore. Heidi Schlumpf, senior correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter and former NCR vice president and executive editor, will deliver the conference keynote address, “Telling Stories of Change in the Church.”
