2016 NEDA Conference

Share. Learn. Belong.

September 29 - October 1, 2016 | Chicago, IL


NEDA offers scholarships to cover the cost of registration only. Due to the limited funds available, we prioritize applications based on the demonstration of need from those who are family members supporting a loved one and are first-time attendees. For first consideration, please submit the online application by June 1st. The scholarship does not include costs incurred for travel or hotel accommodation. Due to the high demand for conference scholarships, scholarship recipients will be required to provide timely confirmation of hotel and travel arrangements.

Scholarship funds are raised through the support of many generous donors. Scholarships will be awarded on an ongoing basis, as long as funds are available.

We will be contacting all applicants via email to notify them of the award decisions. Please do not contact NEDA to check on the status of your application.

“Being able to share my personal experience without shame or fear was a valuable opportunity for me, one I have never been privileged enough to have before. Thank you for providing the chance for me to take another step in my recovery.”

“I went to the Conference an angry, scared and isolated activist, and left feeling and knowing that I am not alone! Without my scholarship, I wouldn't have been able to have my well filled to the brim…A profoundly uplifting, informative, and affirming experience. Cannot wait until next year!!”
