We especially encourage first timers to apply and we do give them first consideration, but ALL attendees may apply and will be considered.

How does the application process work?

  1. Complete the application linked below.
  2. Upon completion of the application you will receive a confirmation e-mail.
  3. Your request will be reviewed and a member of the scholarship team may reach out to you if needed.
  4. Funds will not be dispersed until after the May 31st deadline. You will receive an e-mail on or around June 2nd to confirm the amount of the scholarship award.

The scholarship fund is 100% raised by CERSI attendees, and there is a limited amount of funds from year to year. A completed application is not a guarantee for financial assistance, but the scholarship chair will make every possible effort to meet the needs of all applicants. If you are able to contribute even a small amount of funds towards attending CERSI, please state this in your application.


Applications will be accepted starting March 1, and must be completed by May 31..

Giving to the Scholarship Fund is easy. Remember your first SI and what it meant to you? You can donate as part of your registration process or by visiting the donation page.
