NFXF International Fragile X Conference Scholarships
Thanks to the generosity of the NFXF Community Support Network chapters, community partners, and private donors, conference scholarships have been made available to assist individuals, families, self-advocates, or siblings who might not otherwise be able to attend the conference due to limited financial resources.
About the Conference
The International Fragile X Conference is held every other year and is the largest of its kind in the world. The event brings professionals, caregivers, self-advocates, and family members together in one place. For families and individuals new to Fragile X it can provide much-needed information and guidance. While the conference can seem overwhelming at first, you will meet the most welcoming group of people you have ever met.
For all community members, it’s where you can find friendship and solidarity, sessions focusing on strategies and techniques for living with Fragile X, and an opportunity to discover emerging research and opportunities.
