About the OAC Convention Scholarship Fund

The OAC’s Convention Scholarship Fund is an ongoing designated fund within the Obesity Action Coalition, designed to bring high-quality education to under-served individuals actively seeking the right information on obesity, weight and health. The Scholarship Fund provides grants to individuals-in-need to fund or offset the expenses of attending the Your Weight Matters National Convention, through the Convention Scholarship Program. This specially designated Scholarship Fund is subsidized exclusively by the generosity of individual donations, making it possible for individuals to access evidence-based education and gain valuable knowledge they may not otherwise receive, regardless of any financial hardships they may face.

Since 2014, the Convention Scholarship Program has awarded more than 50 scholarships to individuals in need. Each year, the OAC receives more than $125,000 in requests and it is our goal to build the Scholarship Fund so we can award more even scholarships in the future!
