2019 LEAD® Student Scholarship
Every year the Kennedy Center's Leadership Exchange in Arts and Disability (LEAD®) conference brings experienced and new professionals together to explore practical methods for implementing accessibility in cultural environments. At LEAD®, we share resources and knowledge, develop best practices, and experience accessibility in action.

If accepted, student registration would include access to sessions Monday, August 5 through Wednesday, August 7, 2019. Additional fees apply for pre-conference and capacity building workshops as well as the Awards Evening and other special events.
The application for student scholarships will open by December 15. If you have questions about the scholarships, please contact the Kennedy Center's Accessibility Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-416-8727.
