Scholarships And Financial Grants

Conference Scholarships and SIC Financial Grants

All of the Star conferences are to be commended for their vital scholarship programs! .

Conference Scholarships: In an effort to streamline billing and front-desk operations, we encourage conferences adopt a single method for administering scholarship fund. It is our hope that the following method of handling scholarship funds can be used by conferences:

  1. Conferee applies for scholarship;
  2. Conferences use whatever method they choose to decide on awards;
  3. Conference writes a check in the amount of the scholarship payable to the recipient to use as they see fit in paying their Star Island expenses; alternatively, some conferences present scholarship checks to recipients when they arrive on island, payable to “Star Island Corporation.”

Please note: Conferees cannot accept both a conference scholarships and SIC grant. They may apply for both and accept only one. For more information, see the financial aid page of the website.
