Leslie Bayles Memorial Scholarship Application Information

Leslie Bayles Scholarship Brochure

“The Executive Committee has elected to not offer scholarship funds for the 2019 PAUMCS Conference due to the economical registration fee of  $99. Scholarship funds are only to be used toward registration fees. The committee reviewed the overall probable costs for the 2019 Conference, comparing them against more recent total conference attendee expenses and concluded that those costs would be considerably lower, thereby negating a need for scholarships.” 

Any person meeting the criteria below is eligible to receive financial aid to attend an annual conference of PAUMCS:

  • Members of the National Association submitting proper application to attend an annual conference of PAUMCS will be given preference.
