Check out Student Scholarships to the IC and other great conference opportunities!
There is a new season upon us! And no, I am not talking about spring. I am talking about “conference season”; the few months out of the year that are filled with national events on topics about everything from global poverty, to domestic education, to microfinance. And listen up students — these conferences can be great learning tools and certainly don’t hurt your resumes either.
Besides the amazing opportunity we provide for college students at the RESULTS International Conference in June (don’t worry, I’ll get to that later), many other great opportunities loom in the near future. The IMPACT conference, an esteemed annual event for student leaders, is being held at Stetson University in Deland, Florida from March 31 to April, 2011. This conference is a great “first” for students and focuses on service, advocacy, and social action.
Looking for a more specific topic? Then pick your poison. Microfinance USA Conference in New York City from May 23-24, 2011. This conference will help you understand the detailed processes of microfinance systems, analyze case studies, and showcase experts in the field.
Finally, if you’re looking for a conference that will give you a comprehensive insight into development issues, both domestic and global, then RESULTS International Conference is your perfect-fitting glass slipper. The actual conference takes place from June 19-21, 2011 in Washington, DC, but RESULTS offers a special student program, called Campus for Change, that offers specific student trainings before and after the conference on June 18th and 22nd in addition to the great plenaries, trainings and guest speakers at the conference. Acceptance into this program also gives students a 70 percent scholarship for the cost of the conference registration, travel, and accommodations. The deadline to apply is April 15. Find out more at our conference website, and remember, act now before the season is over!
