Receiving the scholarship will cover the AEA conference registration and a one-year AEA membership and a one year MNEA membership (if not already an AEA/MNEA member). The remainder of the scholarship funds are to be used at the recipients's discretion for expenses such as food, transportation, lodging, or childcare during the conference.
