  • Important Notice
    We will only contact those candidates whom we have selected as travel scholarship candidates via My CFN page. Candidates who do not receive an email notification via My CFN Inbox by October 30th, 2013, unfortunately were not selected for this year's scholarship. Given many career opportunities available at the Career Forum, we strongly encourage you to attend the Career Forum even without the scholarship.

    The travel scholarship will be awarded after 2:00PM on the second 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.

    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 current address (e.g. utility bill, cell phone bill statement, mail from school).
