Scholarship Application Requirements
Applicants must live in the United States or US Territories.
Recipients must agree to use the scholarship to attend the entire CPAT Symposium, which begins at 2:00 PM ET on Wednesday, June 21 and ends at 2:00 PM ET on Friday, June 23.
By applying for and accepting a scholarship, recipients must agree to participate in Hill Day to advocate for survivorship legislation championed by NCCS. Educational materials will be provided in advance of the CPAT Symposium for review prior to arrival to help you prepare for meetings with your members of Congress.
Scholarship recipients must provide a brief testimonial (250 words) after the Symposium. The testimonial should summarize the recipient’s overall experience and the education they gained from attending the meeting. NCCS may post the testimonial or quotes on NCCS’s website and may share testimonials or quotes with funders who make the Symposium possible.
You are not eligible to receive a scholarship in 2023 under the following conditions:
- You accepted scholarship funds in the past and did not attend, without proper notice to NCCS; or
- You received a scholarship and did not complete the required testimonial.
The CPAT registration discount is open to all who would like to attend the in-person CPAT Symposium.
Travel stipends and hotel accommodations will only be awarded to those who live more than 60 miles from the Symposium location.
