All members are valued in our community


We are very excited to receive your application for a scholarship to the 2017 AIS-DSD conference.  The AIS-DSD Support Group does not want financial hardship to keep anyone from our annual conference. The Board carefully reviews all applications and makes decisions based on need in combination with other factors on the scholarship scoring guide. The deadline for scholarship applications is April 30th, 2017. Scholarships will be announced after May 15th, 2017. Before receiving a scholarship, please confirm with your place of work or situation that you can attend and register to go to the conference. Understand there are many with needs, and if you are unable to attend, let us know as soon as possible so that someone else may receive the scholarship in time to attend.

Please note that this year we will be only giving partial scholarships for registration fees.  We will not be covering housing or transportation fees.

When applying and considering costs, the following information may be helpful. Registration is $250.00 for the first attendee, and $175.00 each additional family member. The location is the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Phoenix Tempe, and rooms are $72 a night without tax. There is a complimentary airport shuttle to the hotel. Conference check-in begins the evening of Thursday, July 13th, 2017 at the host hotel(Please keep in mind that as a non-profit corporation, we may be required to send you and the IRS a 1099-MISC form reporting this donation.)

If you could be helped by sharing a room with other attendees, please let us know and we will work toward matching you with a roommate.  

Please check the Scholarship Scoring Guide for further information on how we will score these scholarship requests.  Priority will always be given to members for whom this will be their first conference.  

Upon submission of a scholarship request, please expect an email within 24 hours.  If you do not receive an email, please contact us at scholarship@aisdsd.org immediately.  This is very important.  We will not be accepting any late requests.
