The Love Your Neighbor Coalition and the Oregon-Idaho Conference of The United Methodist Church with generous support from The Collins Foundation are excited to provide Leadership Development Scholarships for General Conference 2016 when it meets May 10-12 in Portland, Oregon.
Scholarship recipients are paired with seasoned legislative advocates who have already been trained and are well-versed in the workings of General Conference. Applicants need to commit to being in Portland May 8-20, participating in advance reading and telephone conferences, and following the guidance of the legislative coordinators. The scholarship will provide funding for travel and lodging for the young adult advocates.
Sixteen recipients in total will be selected, with at least six of those recipients coming from the Oregon-Idaho Conference. Learn more on the LYN Coalition website or by contacting Chett Pritchett, Methodist Federation for Social Action Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
