This year we have two scholarship opportunities available. You’ll notice that one is for refugees and the other is focused on refugee workers.
RHP Refugee Scholarship
We value listening to and learning from refugees/new North Americans at the Roundtable. We are excited to offer a limited number of partial scholarships for refugees/new North Americans at this year’s event. Registration will include three lunches during the Roundtable. Transportation, lodging, and the remaining meals will be at one’s own expense.
