27th Annual Convention

Book Hotel

Scholarship Information

FRIENDS’ mission is to provide support, education and empowerment to young people who stutter, their families and clinicians. Given the difficult financial times many are experiencing, we have increased our scholarship fund and will be providing more scholarships than in previous years. We encourage you to request financial help rather than withdraw from attending the convention.

Scholarships applications are now closed for the 26th Annual Convention in Chicago.

If you have any further questions/concerns, please email: scholarships@friendswhostutter.org.

To experience the convention at its fullest, scholarship recipients are asked to join the full convention, from opening ceremony to closing ceremony.

Sponsor a Family for the 2023 Friends Convention

Whether you’re new to Friends or have been with us for many years, whether you stutter, know someone who stutters, or are an ally, we hope you’ll help us send 10 families to the 2023 Friends Convention in Chicago, IL. Donations to our scholarship fund go towards families’ registrations, meals, and lodging, to ensure that they can attend the annual convention and gain support regardless of their financial situation. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $5,000. Any amount you are able to give impacts the lives of young people who stutter.

With much appreciation to supporters of our scholarship fund
