2020 Need-Based Online OCD Conference Scholarship

Sponsored by:
NW Anxiety Institute

At the IOCDF, we are committed to keeping registration fees affordable, making our programming available to those who need our help the most. NW Anxiety Institute has pledged to sponsor 100 individuals to attend the Online OCD Conference at a discount rate who otherwise would not be able to afford due to financial hardship.

The Need-Based Online OCD Conference Scholarship allows low-income individuals to attend the full, three-day virtual event at the discounted cost of $25 for adults, or $125 for professionals seeking CE credits. 

Applications will be reviewed and awarded on a first come, first served basis. If you have any questions please contact Steph Cogen at scogen@iocdf.org.

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: 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. ***
