2018 Scholarships

We are excited to announce the 2018 SAIS scholarship program! Any member school with a budget of less than $3M if eligible for up to two 50% scholarships for any SAIS program in the 2018 calendar year. The SAIS Board of Trustees has approved funding for this scholarship, which will be distributed to qualifying schools on a first-come, first-serve basis.

FAQs:

  • You may use the two scholarships in any combination you wish — one person may attend two programs, two people may attend the same program, or two people may attend different programs.  
  • Scholarships are granted on a first-come, first-serve basis until all the available funds have been awarded. 
  • Scholarships cover 50% of the event registration fee.  The recipient must pay the remaining 50% upon registering for the event. All prices listed below reflect the 50% scholarship discount.
  • Scholarships are available for new registrations only. They are not available as refunds to those who have already registered.
  • Your school must be a member of SAIS and meet the budget criteria of an annual operating budget of less than $3 million.
