VASTA as an organization values the benefit of hearing the voices and ideas of a diverse group of practitioners.

VASTA will offer the following award for each of the two 2024 in-person symposia:

  • $1250 scholarship
  • A waived conference fee per scholarship recipient
  • One year free membership to VASTA per recipient

Applicants need not be current VASTA members.

You are eligible for the VASTA Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Conference Travel Scholarship if:

  • You identify as a member of an underrepresented group (including, but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, differently-abled, and/or gender identification).
  • Have the financial need to travel to the conference.
  • Have not attended more than one VASTA conference.

To apply, please complete the form below by April 8, 2024. Award recipients will be notified by mid-April.

Applications will be reviewed and voted on by members of VASTA's EDI committee, in consultation with the Awards & Grants Committee. In the case of a tie, the Director of EDI will make a final decision. Scholarship recipients will be asked to write a post-conference article for the VASTA newsletter about their experience. Scholarship recipients will also be invited to serve on the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee.
