NDSC Convention Scholarship Opportunity


Thursday, July 20 - Sunday, July, 23, 2017; Sacramento, California. The DSG is now accepting scholarship applications to attend the 45th Annual National Down Syndrome Congress (NDSC) Convention at the Sacramento Convention Center in Sacramento, California. 

Each year, thousands of people from across the globe attend the NDSC Convention.  For most, it’s to hear the latest information from world-renowned experts.  For others, it’s a great vacation. But, for nearly all, there’s the one-of-a-kind family reunion feeling that permeates the convention weekend. Complete details about this year's convention can be found on the NDSC website at

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship to this year's convention, please click here to download a scholarship application.  Applications must be received no later than Friday, February 10, 2017, for consideration.
