Star Arts Scholarships
As mentioned in our application, we try to make it possible for anyone who wants to attend Star Arts to do so. As such, Star Arts offers scholarships for both new and returning conferees. The deadline for submitting scholarship applications is May 1st, and decisions about grants will be made by May 7th.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You must register and pay the conference deposit before submitting a scholarship request.
If you apply for aid after May 1st, scholarship options may be limited (although we try to reserve a small fund for new Shoalers who discover us close to the conference date).
Applying for a Scholarship
We are in the process of implementing an online scholarship form. If you'd like to register and apply for a scholarship immediately, you can print out and fill in a Scholarship Form. Please send this form to our Registrar along with your Registration Form and deposit.
FYI: You'll need Adobe Reader to print the Scholarship Form. To get a free copy, click Adobe Reader. To avoid getting McAfee Security Scan, uncheck the Security Scan box before downloading.)
If the scholarship we offer is not sufficient for you to attend the conference, you may cancel your registration and your deposit will be refunded. We ask that you cancel immediately, so that we can offer a scholarship to another conferee.
NOTE: Registration and deposit fees are fully refundable up to 6 weeks before the conference date. After that, refunds will be at the discretion of the conference and Island Registrars, and are usually limited to medical or family emergencies.
