Financial Support for Attending General Assembly

Financial Support

General Assembly planners are committed to the goal of making the General Assembly accessible to the maximum number of attendees possible. Financial support to attend GA – virtually or in-person – is offered to those with need. These awards are funded through the generosity of General Assembly registrants via donations made during registration. Requests for financial support are fulfilled on a first-come, first serve basis. New funds may become available as donations are received. Note: A request for financial support does not guarantee an award.

Support is available for those with financial hardship and those who hold historically marginalized identities. GA credentialed delegates are strongly encouraged to seek financial support for in-person GA attendance from their congregations. A limited amount of funding is available for GA delegates representing congregations with fewer than 100 members.

In-person attendees receiving financial support must reserve lodging through the UUA GA Housing Reservation System, which includes both GA-contracted hotels and dormitory accommodations at Portland State. Registration support ranging from $250-$475 will be distributed as credit toward the cost of In-person Registration. Housing support will be distributed as lodging credit (50% of hotel rate or 100% of dorm rate) within the GA room block.

Virtual attendees may request financial support of $125. Awards will be distributed as credit toward the cost of Virtual Registration.

The Financial Support Application for General Assembly 2022 is now closed.
