Lynn A. Bonfield Scholarship 

The Lynn A. Bonfield Scholarship is administered by the Awards Committee and funds travel and registration for members to attend non-SCA sponsored continuing education events outside of California to enhance their professional training. All SCA members in good-standing who have limited or no access to institutional funding for continuing education may apply. Up to $1000 may be awarded per event, and 2 scholarships are available each year.

Each candidate must submit a Bonfield Scholarship Application Form, including a proposed budget listing registration fees, travel expenses, and lodging, by the publicized deadline to be considered for the scholarship. The successful applicant must cover expenses that he or she incurs in excess of the award itself. Award recipients are not eligible to apply more than once within a calendar year. Unsuccessful applicants may apply for additional events within a calendar year, with no prejudice. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered for the scholarship. Awards Committee members are not eligible to apply.

Please send completed application form to, or to the Awards Committee Chair as  listed on the Awards Committee web page.

Complete documentation on this scholarship is available from the SCA Handbook, Section 3-2-7.
