Education

Robert Seigman Memorial Scholarship Fund

Travel scholarships are provided to newly diagnosed and returning families to attend the Alpha-1 Foundation’s annual National Education Conference through the Robert Seigman Memorial Scholarship Fund. A Kids and a Teen room provide the opportunity for parents to attend the conference while their children are enjoying activities with other Alpha children and teens. Activities are planned for both groups and staffed by parents. To apply for a scholarship, email Cathy Horsak at chorsak@alpha1.org.
