Conference Attendee Scholarship

We are happy to announce our invitation to submit a scholarship application to participate in the 10th Annual National Black Trans Advocacy Conference

The scholarship Program is created to help provide transgender people in minority communities nationwide, access to the conference educational and empowerment experience. The scholarship program provides an opportunity for trans people to not only participate in a FREE educational program but to also connect local communities with our mission of social equality through our BTAC Personal, Community and Leadership Programs.

As always, we are striving to include as many people as possible in the conference. We know that many individuals cannot afford the expense of traveling to the conference, yet it is vitally important that a conference of this focus be reached. Our goal is to award a minimum of 50 full or partial scholarships for program participants .
