2019 IOCDF Need-Based Conference Scholarship

26th Annual OCD Conference

For the purposes of this scholarship, the IOCDF will define “need” based on those whose household income falls below the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Federal Poverty Guidelines, sometimes referred to as the “Federal Poverty Levels (FPL),” for the corresponding number of people in their household.  More information about these guidelines can be found at https://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty-guidelines.


For those receiving SSI or SSDI, these guidelines have already been considered prior to you receiving these benefits and you will automatically qualify.  For those receiving other government benefits, your paperwork will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Please upload a copy of one or more of the following:
  • A current 1040 tax form.
  • A current SSI/SSDI benefit statement.
  • Other current government document stating that you receive benefits.
Acceptable formats include .pdf, .jpg, .tiff, .doc, .docx. If you would prefer to fax the document(s), you can send them to (617) 507-0495, ATTN: Stephanie Cogen. 

 *** PLEASE NOTE: We are not longer accepting letters from therapists as a form of documentation for the Conference Scholarship. ***
