The Association of Child Life Professionals awards five international scholarships each year to enable recipients to attend the Child Life Annual Conference. The recipients of the 2020 International Scholarships attended the Child Life Virtual Conference, which took place online May 20–23, and will also attend the 2021 Child Life Annual Conference in Los Angeles, along with three new recipients.
Each scholarship covers registration for the conference, up to five nights lodging at the conference hotel, actual cost of economy round-trip airfare up to $1,800 U.S., and a small stipend for meals and incidentals.
Applicants may be from any country outside North America. Applications are encouraged from any healthcare professional 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.
