Summit travel stipends options

In an effort to make conference travel more affordable for our members, we’re opening a final call for 2024 Summit travel stipend applications. Applications are due Sunday, July 21, at midnight ET.

We’re awarding a flat stipend of $600 per attendee selected to receive a travel stipend. We aim to notify all selected attendees to receive a travel stipend by July 31 to ensure they have time to arrange flights and book hotels. Stipends will be paid the week following the event, and payment is contingent on checking into the event.

The application to apply for a travel stipend is below and will open on June 27.
