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:
- Conferee applies for scholarship;
- Conferences use whatever method they choose to decide on awards;
- 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 scholarship and an SIC grant. They may apply for both, but we ask that they accept only one. For more information, see the financial aid page of the website.
