CWR this year is offering up to four scholarships for the 2019 CWR Annual Conference, which will be held October 1-4 in Mesa, Arizona. Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary full conference registration and a three night stay at the conference host hotel.
The scholarship application along with scholarship rules and related documents will be available in the member resources area of the CWR member website beginning tomorrow (March 1). The deadline for applications is June 30.
All applicants must be a member in good standing. Only current CWR members may apply for scholarship funds. If you are not a current member, please go to c4wr.org to join before continuing with the application process. Only one scholarship application will be accepted from each congregation represented in the CWR membership. Applicants demonstrating financial need will be given priority.
All applicants must include a letter of recommendation from their supervisor or leadership contact, along with an essay (500 words maximum for both) outlining the reason they wish to attend the conference and how it will benefit them both personally and professionally. If actively involved in CWR, please indicate that involvement also.
