OCEANetwork is delighted to be able to offer some scholarships to conference attendees thanks to generous donations from Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and various individuals. It is our hope that no family that desires to attend the conference would be prevented from attending due to financial constraints. For the 2014 Oregon Christian Home Education Conference we are offering the following scholarships:
Parent of Preschooler Scholarship
Parents who have never attended the conference before and whose oldest child is under the age of six by the conference date may attend the conference for free. Children may attend for a minimal fee of $10 per child. To obtain the code for the Parents of Preschoolers Scholarship visit the Registration information page. Registration for Parents of Preschoolers begins at 8 a.m. on April 16th, 2014.
Single Parent Scholarship
Recognizing that single parents, whether by death of a spouse or by divorce, are carrying the load of both provider and teacher, the Board of OCEANetwork would like to alleviate a small portion of this burden by allowing the single parent to attend the conference for free along with their children. Grandparents may accompany the parent for a small charge of $10 per grandparent. Single parents may contact conference registrar, Joyce Padilla at via email at email@example.com or by phone at 503-787-3512 to apply for the scholarship.
Benevolent Scholarship – Homeschoolers are not immune to unemployment and other hardships which come from time to time often making it difficult to pay even the minimal fee for the conference. With this in mind, OCEANetwork offers a benevolent scholarship. To apply for the scholarship, please contact the conference registrar, Joyce Padilla at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pastoral/Missionary Scholarship – Pastors and Missionaries, along with their spouse and children, may receive a scholarship to the conference by submitting your request on your church letterhead or mission board letterhead to the conference registrar, Joyce Padilla, OCEANetwork, 17985 Falls City Road, Dallas, OR 97338 or email her at email@example.com.
Military Scholarship - Active military, along with their spouse and children, may attend the conference for free. To apply for the scholarship, please send proof of military I.D. to the conference registrar, Joyce Padilla, OCEANetwork, 17985 Falls City Road, Dallas, OR 97338 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note OCEANetwork is no longer offering Work Scholarships. Those receiving scholarships are welcome to help at the conference by volunteering, but it is no longer a requirement in order to receive a scholarship.
