Opportunity for those with lived experience
Every year, VTSPC participates in the annual American Association of Sucidology’s national conference.
It is a time to learn about the most recent research, network with people from across the country, and be inspired and educated in the work we do. We always bring back new resources to Vermont and the Coalition.
This year, AAS is offering four scholarships to fund people with lived experience of suicidal thoughts and/or actions in attending the 2020 annual conference in Portland, OR, from April 22-25.
The Lived to Tell scholarship will cover conference registration fees, up to $500 in airfare, a private room in a local Airbnb with other scholarship winners, daily ground travel and meal per diem, and a one-year membership to AAS. Scholarships will be awarded on bases of merit, financial need, and increasing diverse representation.
