Marg Csapo Scholarship Fund

The Marg Csapo Scholarship Fund was created in tribute to founding member, mentor and leader in the IASE,  Dr. Marg Csapo. Scholarships are awarded during each biennial conference year.

Scholarship recipients receive financial support that pays for conference registration, Gala Dinner and five nights of lodging costs.  Proceeds from the silent and live auctions at our biennial conference as well as generous donations from our IASE members support this worthy effort. Contributions can be made at any time.  We appreciate any donations that can help support our colleagues who otherwise would not be able to attend our Biennial Conferences. Our next conference will be in Perth, Australia June 25-29, 2017.  Checks should be made out to IASE/Scholarship Fund and sent to IASE treasurer: Colleen Meyer, P.O. Box 170061, Milwaukee WI 53217, USA.
