Scholarship Opportunities

Restricted Student Partial Scholarships and approved BIPOC Conference scholarships are offered on a limited basis: these scholarships are limited to available funds and must be approved by IASD prior to registering at those scholarship rates.

Student Partial Scholarships are intended primarily for full-time students of accredited colleges or universities who are accompanying a presenting instructor or where an instructor/advisor requests it as part of their education. For approval, a photo/scan of a full-time student I.D., plus a written/e-mail request from the instructor/advisor, must be sent to the IASD office at

To apply for a BIPOC Conference scholarship, go to the IASD Dreams & Ethnicity Portal.

Note: scholarship awardees must be willing to help with a few hours of on-site volunteer activity (such as helping with the dream ball setup) if asked.
