Enter for a Launchpad Scholarship

With the Launchpad program beginning at 8 am on Friday morning, all participants should arrive by Thursday evening. Thanks to the generosity of a few Tri Sigmas, the Foundation will be offering 45 Launchpad Scholarships. Every scholarship will alleviate the additional hotel cost for Thursday night to support the participants’ investment in their personal and professional development.

Anyone registered to attend or planning to attend Launchpad may enter to receive a Launchpad scholarship. Launchpad registration will be confirmed prior to scholarship distribution. Scholarship checks will be available to pick up onsite at Convention beginning Friday, June 28. Each scholarship recipient will receive a reimbursement for the hotel cost of one person in a standard double-occupancy hotel room at the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa.
