2018 Conference Scholarship Opportunities
Fall Conference Quick Links
The Oregon Mediation Association is pleased to provide three scholarship possibilities for those wishing to attend the 2018 Fall Conference:
Shannon Stewart Mediation Training Fund Conference Scholarship was created to recognize the contributions of Shannon Stewart, a wonderful colleague, friend, and leader in the field of mediation. This scholarship is available for volunteer mediators in CDRC or court-connected programs.
Stan Sitnick Student Scholarship Fund is intended to help provide college students the financial support to attend a professional development conference that would otherwise be cost-prohibitive. This scholarship is for full-time undergraduate or graduate students interested in the field of conflict resolution.
High School Student Scholarship Fund was created to engage youth in the field of conflict resolution and provides a full conference fee waiver. Applicants must be high school students.
How to Apply
We are no longer accepting scholarships for the Stan Sitnick Student Scholarship. If you are a high school student or CDRC/court volunteer interested in scholarship funds, please email us OMA@ORmediation.org
Applications are due Monday, October 1 by midnight for first consideration.
When will I be notified of my application status?

What is the selection criteria and how much will I be awarded?
Our objective is to try and make the conference accessible to as many people as possible. Awards will be given based on interest, relevancy, and need. Applicants who apply by October 1 will be given first priority. Please feel free to contact us with any questions at OMA@ORMediation.org.
How do I register for the conference?

What if I don’t receive a scholarship?
We want to help as many people as possible attend the conference. However, we may not be able to help all who have need. All applicants will be notified in time to apply for the early-bird discount.
