Cure SMA is pleased to announced that, thanks to a generous grant from The Dhont Family Foundation, we are offering conference scholarships to all adults with SMA. The scholarship covers registration for one adult, age 18+, and one aide.

Each year, we look forward to reuniting as a community at the Annual SMA Conference. One of the most meaningful and unique aspects of our conference is seeing individuals and families from all areas of our community—from those newly diagnosed, to teens and adults with SMA, to the researchers and clinicians working on SMA—joining together in order to lend each other support and strength, and to learn about the latest advances in research and care.

As in past years, we will have a workshop designed for adults with SMA in every session. We’re also planning our adult social for adults with SMA, which will be held on Thursday night, the opening night of conference.

How to Apply for an Adult Scholarship

To apply for one of our adult scholarships, please complete our conference scholarship form. The deadline to complete the scholarship application is Wednesday, May 4.

However, we encourage you to fill out your application as soon as possible, while hotel rooms are still available. Registration for the Annual SMA Conference is well on its way to a record-setting number. Over 1100 families and researchers have registered for the conference thus far. The conference and hotel may sell out well in advance of the registration deadline.
