Scholarships 2023

The New England Federation of Humane Societies (NEFHS) is proud to offer scholarship funding for the 2023 Conference, April 15-17, in Hartford, CT. 

This year we are fortunate to have received a grant from the John T and Jane A Wiederhold Foundation to fund scholarships. In accordance with the grantor’s wishes, priority will be given to applicants from organizations with annual budgets of less than $500,000 and whose organization has not sent anyone to the conference in the past 3 years. If your organization does not meet this criteria, you may still apply, and additional scholarships for people not meeting these criteria may be awarded as funds permit.

In order to ensure your application is considered, please read the information below and abide by the requirements for application submission.
