Thank you for your interest in the AR Conference Work Scholar Program. This program allows conference participants to earn back all or part of their registration by helping at the conference (before and after also). It's a great opportunity to meet other participants and help us to make the conference the best it can be.

Registration for the work scholar program will be when registration opens on January 8. You will register for $120 and will be reimbursed partially or fully, depending on how many hours you'd like to work (we require that you work a minimum of 6 hours). After the conference, we will mail you a check for the cost of your registration fee at the rate of $10/hour.

We'll do our best to accommodate everyone and make sure you see the sessions you like the most! It's a win-win situation that helps everyone.

Please note that low-income/travel discounts cannot be combined with the work scholar program. Meals and lodging are not included.
