As one of our valued volunteers or supporters, the Sarcoma Foundation of America (SFA) would like to extend a special invitation for you to join us in Washington, DC, as an advocate on behalf of the sarcoma community. While there will be several opportunities** over the upcoming year to serve as an advocate and share your story with legislators, we are currently looking for advocates to attend the One Voice Against Cancer (OVAC) Lobby Day.

To thank you for your efforts and support, the SFA would like to extend to you an invitation to apply for a scholarship of up to $500 to help defray the cost of attendance at One Voice Against Cancer Lobby Day. In addition, SFA will cover $75* of the cost of the registration fee.
*Note: The registration fee for each participant will be paid on the registration website. The fee is as follows: $75 on or before 11:59 pm EST April 5, 2019, and $125 on or after April 6, 2019.
There are a limited number of scholarships available. Scholarship applications must be submitted by 5:00 pm EDT on Friday, March 22, 2019. Scholarship decisions will be made on Monday, March 25, 2019. Applicants will be notified via email at the address provided on the scholarship application.
Advocates chosen to receive a scholarship will receive up to a $575 reimbursement to assist with registration, travel, lodging, and meal expenses. Attendance at the legislative training and the meetings on Capitol Hill are mandatory in order to receive this scholarship.
Questions? Please contact Lori Hoffman, Director of Research and External Affairs, at email@example.com or 301-253-8687.
Thank you for your efforts to move us closer to finding the cure for sarcoma!
**Advocacy scholarships will also be made available in the year for other events, such as the Rally for Medical Research Capitol Hill Day. While volunteers are welcome and encouraged to take part in all advocacy activities, advocates may only receive a scholarship per calendar year.
