The International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (iaedp) Foundation is proud to announce three scholarship opportunities for the 2016 iaedp Symposium, taking place February 17- 22 at the Omni on Amelia Island in Florida. The 30th annual Symposium features pre-certification courses, keynote speakers and interactive workshops.
Intended for first-time attendees or iaedp members with financial need, scholarships are awarded from December 1 – 15, 2015. The Financial Aid Scholarships (ten awarded) cover a majority of the symposium registration fees while the Dick Wilson Scholarship Fund covers one applicant’s cost of one full symposium registration, (but not additional costs, such as preconference sessions or travel expenses). The Christina Hartline Scholarship also covers one applicant’s registration fees as well as $1,000 intended for transportation and hotel expenses.
