About the National Convention Scholarship Program

The OAC wants to make the Your Weight Matters National Convention a reality for any individual with a desire to learn more about their weight and health, and this includes those who may not have the financial means to cover all the costs associated with taking part in an in-person meeting. In response to the growth of the Convention, along with the need for individuals to have access to the right education about weight and health, the OAC proudly created the Convention Scholarship Program to award grants to fund or offset the associated expenses in attending the Convention.

In 2014, the Scholarship Program awarded 13 scholarships totaling more than $10,000 in assistance. The OAC plans to give away even more scholarships in 2015 for those wanting to attend YWM2015.
