2019 CONFERENCE SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES


Meals on Wheels America Members were eligible to apply for one scholarship per organization per opportunity. However, consideration was made to ensure that funds were distributed widely, giving as many programs the opportunity to send a staff person to the 2019 Conference as possible.
 
All of this year's scholarship opportunities are now closed.
