Scholarship Announcements

In an effort to give back to members, the SUGA Board of Directors has announced two new programs. The first is a scholarship program paying up to 15 registration fees to the 2020 CentralSquare user conference. The second is a grant program designed to provide financing for member-led state meetings and trainings.

State Meetup & Training Grants
