Due to technical difficulties with its website, the Funeral Service Foundation has extended the application deadline for Professional Women’s Conference scholarships. Applicants now have until Wednesday, February 20 to apply for a scholarship to attend the foremost gathering for women in funeral service.
The NFDA Professional Women’s Conference, taking place April 12-14 in Annapolis, Md., is the perfect setting for funeral directors, educators, students and suppliers to generate new ideas, grow personally and professionally, and create lasting relationships with other professionals. In addition to unique networking opportunities, attendees will have a chance to learn about a wide range of topics including the value of ceremony, grief, human resources and more. More information about the Professional Women’s Conference can be found at www.nfda.org/pwc.
The Funeral Service Foundation will award up to 10 Professional Women’s Conference scholarships that will cover registration and event fees, two nights of accommodations at Hotel Annapolis, and up to $500 in travel reimbursement. The Professional Women’s Conference scholarships are part of the Foundation ‘45 Awards, which are designed to transform the careers of funeral service professionals through scholarships, awards, resources and mission-focused outreach.
Funeral professionals can visit the Funeral Service Foundation website, www.funeralservicefoundation.org, for more information about the Professional Women’s Conference Scholarships and to apply by the new February 20 deadline.
