“Every attendee at the conference is of value, representing leadership and vision of their field in a variety of ways. I paid out-of-pocket to attend this conference including the hotel, transportation, and food. Most conferences I am covered through my job, a nonprofit organization, university, or private donor. However, this was the first time I fully funded myself to attend a conference and I feel proud. I cherish the conversations and experiences a lot more.”  – 2015 Scholar
