As a benefit of Coalition membership, each Coalition member program in good standing is eligible to receive scholarships for up to two staff members to attend our conference.
Each attending member program may receive:
- Registration fee waivers for up to two (2) attendees from that program;
- Discounted registration fees for additional attendees from that program;
- Lodging reimbursement (not to exceed a total of $375.83 per program);*^
- Round-trip mileage reimbursement (at the federal rate of $0.58/mile) for one vehicle per program;*° and
- Childcare fee waivers for the children of up to two (2) attendees.
IMPORTANT: The deadline for scholarship registration is 5:00pm on Friday, April 5th, 2019. Registrations received after this deadline will be charged the late registration fees and WILL NOT be eligible to receive mileage and lodging reimbursement.
Registration fees waivers and discounts
In mid-February, we send each OCADSV member program's executive director or DV/SA lead program coordinator an email containing special scholarship codes. These codes, when entered into the appropriate field on the conference registration form, allow up to two (2) people to register for the conference at no cost, with the third and subsequent registrants at a discounted rate (varies, based on date of registration).
- If conference scholarship attendees will stay in guestrooms at Sunriver Resort that were booked in the conference room block, you shouldn't need to submit any documentation. We can verify their presence independently.
- If conference scholarship attendees will stay elsewhere (e.g. River Lodge Suites, condos, rental cabins), we need documentation of those expenses before we can process your scholarship check. Please email a copy of the final lodging bill to [email protected] ASAP after the conference.
- You shouldn't need to submit any documentation.
- Roundtrip mileage figures are pre-calculated by OCADSV based upon the shortest geographic route between Sunriver Resort and the address we have on file for each Member Program. If you feel this calculation would represent a significant deviation from attendees' actual incurred mileage, you may request an exception to this policy via email to [email protected].
Child care for scholarship attendees
Scholarship registrants needing child care during the conference should email Jonathan Gates, OCADSV Communications and Events Coordinator ([email protected]). OCADSV will provide special child care scholarship codes to bypass child care payment on our online conference registration form.
The glorious fine print
* Scholarship checks will be issued and mailed to each Member Program no later than three weeks after the Conference. Registrants attending on scholarship still need to pay up front for their lodging and transportation expenses.
^ Maximum lodging compensation available per Member Program is $375.83 (formula: $113 per night x 3 nights + 9.8% tax). Any additional expenses incurred will not be compensated by OCADSV and are the responsibility of the attendees and/or Member Program.
° Roundtrip mileage figures are pre-calculated based upon the shortest driveable route between Sunriver Resort and the address we have on file for each Member Program. We strongly encourage car-pooling whenever possible.
