June 20, 2017
Deepak Chopra said “Giving connects two people, the giver and the receiver, and this connection gives birth to a new sense of belonging.”
Thanks to the generosity of many, Affirmation is able to offer financial assistance to those who normally would not be able to attend our events. So many have come to conference and have experienced a renewed sense of hope, belonging and inner peace, and it is part of our mission to make that experience available to all LGBT Mormons, their families and friends who need it. We are grateful for the continued support we have received and the blessing it has been for so many.
Scholarship applicants can request a full or partial registration fee waiver, based on their financial means. Travel assistance is also available to help cover transportation and lodging. The deadline to apply for travel assistance is July 25, 2017. The deadline to apply for full or partial registration waivers is August 31, 2017.

Each application is personally reviewed and carefully selected. We will award scholarships to all who need them in order of receipt of the scholarship application, until our scholarship fund runs out. We will prioritize scholarship applicants who have not had a chance yet to experience an Affirmation conference. We will work with applicants to figure out how best to support their conference attendance, with a goal of helping as many individuals in need as possible.
The Scholarship Program is about more than money. It is about bringing together our family under one beautiful and spacious rainbow. It is about providing a hand-up through the dark clouds that so many of us face each and every day.
Maya Angelou said “Hope and Fear cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Invite one to stay”.
If you are an applicant, THANK YOU for inviting hope to stay.
If you are a donor, THANK YOU for for sharing hope with others.
If you are learning more, THANK YOU for giving hope a chance to grow.
