Please consider the following when applying for Star Island Financial Grants

  • Applicants may receive both a Star Island financial grant and a Star Island discount (if applicable).
  • Financial grant awards typically will only cover part of room and board, not the full amount.  Also, they do not cover any programming fees required by the conference.
  • The total amounts given out in financial grants are dependent upon the number of approved applicants.
  • Financial grant applicants must already have registered for the conference.  If paying the registration fees and deposit upfront presents a hardship, exceptions can be made.  Please contact the Island Registrar,
