NADCO offers conference registration scholarships for up to five individuals for the Spring Summit. These scholarships are intended for employees at CDCs that would not otherwise send someone due to financial restrictions. CDC employees that match this description are encouraged to apply for one of the scholarship slots.

Information and Application

Please submit your scholarship application by the conclusion of Early Bird (April 16, 2020). At that time, NADCO staff will review applications (keeping all information confidential) and respond within five business days. NADCO will continue accepting applications after Early Bird only if we have not yet awarded all five scholarships. Late applications will hear back quickly from NADCO staff regarding the status of their applications. Applicants should not register for the conference as registrations will be processed once scholarship decisions have been reached.

Selected recipients will receive a registration fee waiver. CDC employees might consider applying for the following reasons:
  • The cost of the registration is too much when combined with travel and hotel expenses
  • The CDC feels it's necessary to send an additional person but can only afford one registration
*Please email Mandy Robertson at for questions regarding scholarships.

Please note that recipients are required to stay within the NADCO hotel block.

The scholarship covers only the cost of the conference registration. It does not cover hotel, travel, or per diem expenses.
