The NFTY-MV Scholarship Application is due on Sunday, November 20th. All who apply will receive information about the scholarship amount on or before Wednesday, November 23rd. It is important that you wait register until you receive an email confirming the scholarship.  At that time, the amount will have been placed into your registration account so you will be charged the event fee less the amount of the scholarship. When you register, it looks like you will be charged the total amount, but the NFTY Registrar process each payment by hand and only charges your credit card the amount less the scholarship submitted by NFTY-MV.  You will receive another confirmation email when your card is charged with a link to your account to check the amount.  This may take up to 5 business days after you register for the event.
