ANC First-Timer Scholarship

The ANC First-Timer Scholarship is made possible through a generous donation from AccuTemp Products. These scholarships give SNA members (employees and managers) who have never attended SNA’s Annual National Conference (ANC) the opportunity to take advantage of the valuable educational and professional development opportunities to advance their careers. The $500 scholarship may be used to cover registration and travel expenses associated with attending ANC.

How do I apply for a scholarship?

There is no formal application - You must be nominated to be considered for a scholarship. District directors, who are active SNA members and are registered to attend ANC 2018, may nominate one member of their staff for this scholarship. The staff member must be an active SNA member in the employee or manager category who has never attended SNA’s ANC.

Directors may not nominate more than one staff member for this scholarship.

How can I complete a nomination form? 

After registering for ANC, the district director can submit a nomination online. Awards are made on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner you submit a nomination, the better chance there is of receiving a scholarship.

Before completing the nomination, please have the following information available:

  • Your contact information
  • Your ANC registration and proof of payment
  • Address information where scholarship check should be sent

Please preview the form before creating an account and completing the form.

How are recipients determined?

Awards are given on a first come, first served basis to first 20 qualified nominees.
