Contains: Courage™ FARE Summit Scholarships
Contains: Courage™ FARE Summit scholarship applications will be accepted until September 6, 2019. Scholarships provide access to teens and their parents who are otherwise unable to attend the Summit due to financial limitations.

A limited number of full scholarships are available that will cover the costs of conference registration, two nights at the host hotel, airfare (if applicable) and a meal stipend. Those who do not receive a full conference sponsorship may be considered for a partial scholarship which will cover the cost of conference registration fees.
Scholarship winners will be asked to share an account of their Contains: Courage™ FARE Summit experience, which may be in the form of an essay, interview, video or another medium as requested by FARE.

2019 Contains: Courage™ FARE Summit Scholarships are provided with support by:
Emily Zaltsman Memorial Scholarship Fund
Emily Zaltsman knew firsthand the challenges of living with a food allergy, and it inspired her to make the world a safer place for others like her. She not only chose the 2017 San Antonio Food Allergy Heroes Walk as her Bat Mitzvah project, but she also dreamed of dedicating her life to researching food allergies. Tragically, Emily was killed at the age of 13 by a distracted driver who was texting. Even though Emily is no longer with us, her mission to help the 32 million Americans living with food allergies lives on through the Emily Zaltsman Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Natalie Giorgi Sunshine Foundation
The Natalie Giorgi Sunshine Foundation was created to reduce dangerous food allergy deaths by spreading public awareness, providing education regarding emergency responses, and increasing the availability of epinephrine injectors in public places.
