We issue more than 50 scholarships every year at the National Sex Ed Conference!

The Conference does not work without our volunteers; it is a massive undertaking, and we need the help! We offer reduced registration in trade for time volunteering, such has helping with swag bags, monitoring workshops, and networking! In order to have another 50+ volunteers attend, our fundraising goal is $20,000. Will you help?


What is Pay It Forward?

Pay It Forward is a scholarship that provides professionals with a reduced registration rate for the Center for Sex Education’s (CSE) National Sex Ed Conference. Pay It Forward scholarship recipients provide important volunteer services which allow them to learn and network with the nationally-recognized staff of The CSE and workshop presenters throughout the Sex Ed Conference.

What assistance do scholarship recipients receive?

The number of Pay It Forward scholarships we are able to provide depends on the amount that is contributed to the total scholarship fund. Pre-pandemic, we were able to assist 50 individuals. Pay It Forward scholarships will be awarded in the amount of $300-$400+ toward the full-conference registration fee. Some smaller awards may also be available to applicants who do not receive these awards. The Pay It Forward scholarship will be applied to the recipient’s conference registration fee and scholarship applicants agree to be responsible for the remaining $100 balance.
