Thanks to generous donor support, the Funeral Service Foundation has awarded scholarships to NFDA’s Professional Women’s Conference since 1998. The conference offers women of funeral service an opportunity to learn, a chance to collaborate, and a structure for networking that elevates the profession and enriches careers. Past scholarship recipients tell us they leave the conference with greater passion for funeral service and renewed energy with which to serve their communities.
Up to 15 scholarships are awarded annually for the NFDA Professional Women’s Conference. Scholarships cover registration and event fees, two nights of accommodation at the host hotel, and up to $500 in travel reimbursement.
Application deadline: February 28, 12 p.m. Central time
The scholarship is open to women from the US and Canada who are verifiably employed in funeral service or a related occupation, or women students of funeral service enrolled in an accredited program.
