Student Scholarships

Student registration for the entire Issues Forum, including the Thursday evening banquet, is $70.

Because we believe the Issues Forum is an important experience and understand that students have limited means to attend conferences, we want to help.

If you are a student and need registration support, please contact Lynn de Freitas ldefreitas@xmission.com as soon as possible for more details.

Why We Care

  • Several years ago I was enchanted by Alfred Lambourne’s romanticized paintings of the Great Salt Lake, so began my own quest to explore its islands and capture what I saw in quick, plein air, oil sketches.

    I made many day-trips to Black Rock and spent a significant amount of time camping on Stansbury and Antelope Islands, climbing their trails and swimming in their bays. My paintings became my diary as I observed the changing light and shadow on the rocks and water. The brine flies and gnats often hovered over my shoulder anxious to immortalize themselves in the sticky colorful oil paint.
