The Arthritis Foundation is pleased to offer limited financial assistance to families wishing to attend the JA Conference who meet certain criteria. The JA Conference travel award process is managed out of the Arthritis Foundation’s home office. Travel award applications are open to both children and their families (up to 4 people), and young adults (ages 18 – 25). Travel awards only cover partial expenses. They do not cover the cost of additional meals, transportation to/from airport, parking fees, room upgrades, or expenses related to additional members of the family. A committee of Arthritis Foundation volunteers will anonymously review applications from across the country; no member of the committee may apply for an award.
Travel award applications are now closed.
If you have additional questions, please contact Katie Bitner at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-965-7538.
