The Kitchens Fund for First Time National Conference Attendees is available to all current LPA members who are first time National Conference Attendees.
Each year LPA is pleased to provide $8,000 - $10,000 in Kitchens Fund Grants.
Applications may be faxed or mailed..
The Kitchen’s Travel Fund was established in honor of the Kitchen’s family as a way to assist members of Little People of America in attending the annual National Conference. To qualify for the fund the applicant must meet the following criteria:
1) must be a first-time attendee of a National Conference
2) must be a paid member of LPA in good standing, and
3) any minor child must be accompanied by an adult/guardian
When applying, the applicant should submit a cover letter explaining why they should qualify for the fund. In the cover letter (if possible), provide the name of an LPA member (non-family) as a reference.
Since funds for travel are limited and LPA tries to help as many applicants as possible, total expenses are not covered. Partial travel expenses OR a complimentary hotel room for a few nights, OR meal expenses are examples of a typical award. No monies will be awarded until the applicant is actually at the conference, therefore, conference reservations and travel arrangements should be made in advance. This award is a reimbursement.
Deadlines for applications will be April 30 of the year in which the conference will be attended. Applicants will be notified by phone or e-mail by June 1.
