NEFLIN Assistance for Conference Travel
If you will be traveling to a conference in 2015 and need financial assistance, please consider applying to NEFLIN for a stipend from the Jim Morris Continuing Education Fund (JMCEF).
Since its inception the JMCEF has provided over $3,000 to assist NEFLIN members with their professional development. 
The NEFLIN Board recently increased the stipend maximum to $500, and revised the application process to make it easier to apply and receive funds.
