Start making plans to attend General Assembly 2018 in Kansas City. It will be a life changing experience.
FINANCIAL AID FOR GENERAL ASSEMBLY
Financial aid for General Assembly is available in the form of working volunteer positions as well as registration scholarships and travel grants. GA Volunteers exchange a set number of hours of work at GA for a full-time GA registration. There are several different funding sources available via the General Assembly Unified Scholarship Application, including additional funding committed by the UUA Administration to the 2018 budget to facilitate the participation of People of Color and Indigenous (POCI) Persons at GA. Anyone with a relationship to a Unitarian Universalist congregation or UU organization (covenanted community) is encouraged to apply.
Financial Aid applications are accepted March 1 through March 31.
