Attend ANC 2018 with a First-Timer Scholarship!


ANC First-Timer Scholarship

The School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) is proud to announce that AccuTemp Products is once again sponsoring our ANC First-Timers Scholarships. This year, we will award $500 scholarships to 20 SNA members. These scholarships give SNA members (employees and managers) who have never attended SNA’s Annual National Conference (ANC) the opportunity to take advantage of the valuable educational and professional development opportunities to advance their careers.

Past scholarship recipients commented that the experience was overwhelmingly positive:

  • “I have only been in my position 1 year and I learned so much at ANC. I cannot wait to implement some things at my school and share with my district.”
  • “Thank you for allowing me to attend ANC. It was great!”
  • “There is no way to measure the amount of knowledge that I was able to attain from this conference. I truly appreciate the scholarship and I am already implementing the new techniques and ideas that I got from sessions and the other attendees.”

There is no application – just a short nomination form and scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible SNA members. In addition, all ANC First-Timer Scholarship winners will receive an invitation to the exclusive New Connections Reception where they can network with other scholarship winners, SNA Future Leaders, and SNA and SNF Board Members.
