USA Stipend Information


Because of forward-thinking and generous donors who lost their children to Batten disease, each year, there is a limited amount of stipend funding available for families who need assistance to attend the annual BDSRA Conference.  Please click below for more information.


Canadian Stipend information


 The BDSRA Canadian Chapter will be able to cover 3 nights of hotel (1 room per family) plus the conference meals for approved Canadian families.  Limited funds are available for stipends so we are allocating on a first-come first-served basis. If a family chooses to stay at the hotel for additional nights or orders T-shirts; these costs will be at the families own expense.

 Canadian families that wish to apply for stipends should contact:
