  • Application dates
    August 24th (Mon.) - November 5th (Thu.) (US Eastern Time)
  • Important Notice
    We will only contact those candidates whom we have selected as travel scholarship recipients via My CFN email. Candidates who do not receive an email notification via My CFN Inbox by November 11th, 2015 were, unfortunately, not selected for this year's scholarship. Given the availability of many career opportunities at the Career Forum, we strongly encourage you to attend even without the scholarship.

    The travel scholarship will be awarded after 2:00PM on the second day and after 10:00AM on the third day of the Career Forum. To receive the scholarship, qualified participants must attend the Career Forum at least two days. Due to security reasons, under no circumstances can we award the scholarship before or after the Career Forum. Please plan your trip accordingly.

    You must bring:
    - your name badge
    - valid ID (e.g. driver's license, student ID or passport)

    * If your ID does not reflect your current address registered to CFN, please make sure to bring another document that proves your address (e.g. utility bill, cell phone bill statement, mail from school).

    ** Other forms of compensation, such as hotel coupons, may be awarded in place of check awards.

  • Application Process
    The application for the Travel Scholarship has closed. The Boston Career Forum 2015 is a rare opportunity to meet with world-class companies all in one place. Many candidates travel from as far away as Europe and Japan to attend the Career Forum without a travel scholarship. Don't miss this rare event to explore your career opportunities!
