2022 Travelers Aid International Annual Conference
Barrington Scholarship Application

In 2006, a generous bequest from Aldene Barrington allowed Travelers Aid International to establish the Barrington Scholarship Program to financially assist member agencies in sending a representative to the TAI Annual Conference, which otherwise they would not be able to do.

We are again pleased to offer Barrington Scholarships for the 2022 Annual Conference, set for September 14-16, 2022, in Oklahoma City. Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis until the annual allotment has been expended. Only one scholarship is allowed per member organization; you can apply for the Main Attendee Scholarship OR the Second Attendee Scholarship, not both.

Types of Scholarships

Main Attendee Scholarship:

For a member agency, TAI will WAIVE the registration fee of the primary attendee ($300) and reimburse up to three (3) nights of hotel room costs.*

Second Attendee Scholarship:

If a member agency sends a second attendee to the conference, TAI will WAIVE the registration fee ($240); reimburse up to three (3) nights of hotel room costs, and reimburse up to $500 in transportation costs for this second attendee.*

Airport-only Member Scholarship:

Airport-only members are eligible for a $100 scholarship toward the cost of registration.*


  • Each member agency is limited to one scholarship, either for a main attendee OR a second attendee.
  • Hotel: Hotel reimbursement will be limited to the cost of the room at the special room block rate of $129.00 per night plus applicable taxes. In-room movies, mini-bar and room service, etc. will be the responsibility of the attendee.
