Do you need help securing funds to attend the conference?

FORCE is excited to offer you 2 options this year to help obtain registration and a 3-night hotel stay at the Sheraton Hotel and Marina in San Diego, California on October 18-20, 2018. As financial aid is limited, we encourage you to try both options below.

Conference Fundraising is available to everyone and gives you the opportunity to raise the funds needed for the registration and hotel.

Financial Aid is available to a limited number of eligible individuals based on economic need.

*FORCE will not provide reimbursements directly to individuals. If you are selected for financial aid or meet your fundraising goal, FORCE will book your award. FORCE will not be able to reimburse you for the registration fees or hotel room if you book them directly.
