THE HOPE SCHOLARSHIP was established in 2014 to help families affected by CDKL5 afford the IFCR’s family conference.
We are excited to announce that the IFCR has received funding to assist individuals and/or families to attend the 2nd IFCR’s International Educational Family Conference in Washington, D.C. June 26-28, 2014.
The Hope Scholarship covers hotel accommodations for two nights, full convention registration for each family member and any local taxes or fees. Applicants should keep in mind that the scholarships do not cover transportation, hotel incidentals, and transportation to and from the hotel/airport or meals not provided as part of the convention registration.
