ACTCON Student Scholarships


ACTCON 2016 for Students

Thank you for your interest in a student scholarship for ACTCON 2016, ACT for America’s National Conference & Legislative Briefing. We are excited that you are interested in joining the largest U.S. grassroots movement working to defend the security of our nation!

We believe that each person is wired with great purpose. Sometimes, as young people, we have a lot of built up curiosity and passion, but seem stuck behind our desks waiting on the right opportunity to switch that energy over to ACTION!

You can have that special opportunity by receiving a student scholarship to our annual conference and legislative briefing: ACTCON 2016.

We are looking for high school (Juniors and Seniors only) and college students who are ready to stand up and make a difference. At our national conference, you will learn about current national security issues, meet federal legislators on the front lines of national security, and visit the office of your individual federal legislators. Most importantly, you will understand the importance and power of democratic grassroots advocacy.

Take the plunge, and apply for one of our national security student scholarships today!

Please note: here are a limited number of scholarships available for ACTCON 2016. Scholarship applications will be processed as they are received, and students will be notified about whether or not they have been selected as soon as the full processing is complete. Applicants must be at least 17 years of age.

Each student who receives a scholarship to ACTCON 2016 will receive the following:

  • 1 Complimentary general registration to ACTCON 2016;
  • Accommodations at the Omni Shoreham Hotel (shared room with another student) for the nights of Monday, September 5th, Tuesday, September 6th, and Wednesday, September 7th.
  • Reimbursement for 50% of standard travel costs associated with attendance at the conference (reimbursed after the conference when receipts are submitted to ACT for America).

We look forward to receiving your completed application, and cannot wait to meet you at ACTCON2016! Please direct any questions about our event to
