Detention Watch Network is offering a limited number of travel scholarships for the 2009 Conference, which will be held on September 24-26, 2009 at Foundry United Methodist Church in Washington , DC . If you would like to attend the conference but cannot afford to get to DC you can apply for a travel scholarship. We are also offering housing assistance either in the form of solidarity housing or shared rooms. All scholarship requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and relevant factors, including organizational budget and geographic diversity, will be taken into consideration. Priority will be given to affected individuals/families and to those participants who would otherwise not be able to attend.
