PAM Conference Scholarships

Through the generosity of many donors, PAM is pleased to offer a variety of scholarships for our conferences and gatherings throughout the year. Generally speaking, scholarships cover registration fees only. Unless noted otherwise, lodging, meals, and travel to and from the conference site are the responsibility of the scholarship recipient. We encourage you to contact your local church, presbytery, synod, or other supporting organization for assistance with these other costs. We encourage you to apply for any and all scholarships for which you may qualify.
