The submission deadline has passed. Winners will be announced late June.


Would you like to attend SVU's 2017 Annual Conference in Lake Buena Vista, FL, August 3-5 but could use a little financial help?

​SVU has expanded and increased the number of grants available for 2017. SVU will award four students and four non-student members, a $500 educational grant to assist in the cost to attend.

If you would like to be considered for one of these grants to be used for your Annual Conference registration fee, travel expenses, or hotel room expense, please send an essay of 400-500 words explaining why SVU should award you with one of these 2017 Annual Conference Educational Grants. Your email essay submission must include your full name, mailing address, e-mail address, daytime phone number and SVU Membership ID Number.

Your essay must be submitted by June 1, 2017 via e-mail to Jeanette Brown.

Please note, you must be a SVU member in good standing to apply. Grant will be provided once member has confirmed registration for the Annual Conference.

SVU would like to thank CCI for their generous contribution in sponsoring two, $500 educational grants to help offset the cost of attending.
