Scholarship recipients will provide up to 18 hours of service at the Annual Meeting, arranged to accommodate the sessions they would like to attend. Duties will involve assisting with registration, helping Session Chairs with audiovisual needs during the sessions, and aiding Program Committee members with other set-up and arrangement needs. Students must also attend an orientation session on Wednesday, November 19 at 3:00pm at the conference hotel. Recipients of these scholarships must also stay at the conference hotel.

Application: Interested individuals should send a curriculum vitae and a letter of interest to Britta Abeln in the ASOR office with "TFBA Application" in the subject heading. The letter should summarize how the applicant will benefit from attending the Annual Meeting. A budget of projected expenses should be included as well as one letter of recommendation.
