JCEP Extension Leadership Conference Scholarship Application Now Open

**You must be the President, President-Elect or approved designee of an active Affiliate of NEAFCS in order to apply for this scholarship.**

One of the primary goals of NEAFCS is to develop leadership skills in our members. With that goal in mind, the NEAFCS Board of Directors established the JCEP Extension Leadership Conference Scholarship to encourage attendance by Affiliate Presidents, President-elects or other emerging leaders. 

Recognizing that many of our Affiliates don’t have the resources to send a representative, the NEAFCS Board of Directors is offering scholarships to subsidize the cost of attendance. Please see the JCEP Extension Leadership Conference Scholarship guidelines and application here for consideration.

Scholarships will be offered on a first come, first serve basis with preference given to first time attendees who complete the application by December 15.  After this date, scholarships will be awarded based on date received. A total of 35 scholarships are available for 2020 with only one (1) being awarded per Affiliate.
