The Child Life Council (CLC) is pleased to announce the availability of several international scholarships to attend the CLC 32nd Annual Conference on Professional Issues in New Orleans, Louisiana, which takes place May 22-25, 2014, at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.
Each scholarship will cover registration for the conference, up to five nights lodging at the conference hotel, actual cost of economy round-trip airfare up to—but not exceeding— $1,800 US, and a small stipend for meals and incidentals. At its discretion, CLC may offer additional partial scholarships that will cover attendees’ registration fees, hotel accommodations, and a small stipend for meals and incidentals (airfare not included).
Applicants may be from any country outside North America. Applications are encouraged from any health care professional from outside North America who has an interest in the psychosocial care of children. The award process will look most favorably on professional practitioners or administrators in a position to be able to introduce, or greatly enhance, psychosocial care consistent with child life practice and principles in their respective parts of the world. Applicants must have proficiency in English, as it is the official language of the conference.
