Updated Conference Scholarship and Registration Information

We've extended the early bird registration prices through March 1, 2019 for the upcoming Meals on Wheels Texas Conference & Expo at the Hyatt Regency in Austin from April 15-18. The preliminary agenda, now posted to the website, includes session tracks for More than a Meal service offerings, Volunteer Management, Leadership, and Development. We'll also be visiting with elected officials at the Capitol during the 2019 Legislative Session.

But there's more...

There are still a few scholarships available for the 2019 Meals on Wheels Texas Conference in Austin! 


Thanks to very generous supporters, we are able to offer two separate scholarships!

The first is in the amount of  $1,250 and open to ALL member organizations. (In most cases, this will cover the full cost of early bird registration, 2 or 3 nights of hotel accommodations and some or all of your travel expenses, depending on your length of stay at the hotel.) 

The second is in the amount of $500 and is available only to our member organizations that are located in a rural area.
 

The same application will be used for both scholarship opportunities.

 
Scholarships applications will be evaluated as they are received. Applicants selected to receive a scholarship will be notified shortly after the decision has been made so that they can register within the Early Bird period, as required. 

Scholarship eligibility is contingent upon meeting the following rules, requirements and criteria:
  • The individual applying must have the approval of the Executive Director or Board of Directors of a current, dues-paying Meals on Wheels Texas member organization
  • Only one application per member organization will be accepted
  • Scholarship recipients must personally attend and participate in the conference
  • Scholarship recipients must register and prepay for the conference registration in advance by February 15, 2019, which is the Early Bird rate deadline
  • Scholarship recipients must make hotel accommodations at the host hotel
  • Scholarship recipients are required to attend conference session(s) pertaining to expanding services into unserved areas, as well as a Texas Department of Agriculture grant application workshop (Note: this is only required if your organization is not a current recipient of the Texas Department of Agriculture Home Delivered Meal grant program called Texans Feeding Texans)
  • Scholarship recipients are expected to attend 80% or more of the conference agenda and attendance will be tracked
Scholarship checks will be presented to the award recipients at the conference unless other arrangements are made in advance. If your organization has already purchased your registration to the conference, you are still eligible to apply.
 
Note: In cases where it will create a financial hardship on the applicant's organization to prepay for registration and accommodations, please contact us at info@mealsonwheelstexas.org so that alternative scholarship funding arrangements can be discussed.
