The conference has a history that extends back to the 1960s. This year, the theme will be “Toward a Winning Strategy for the Left.”
Scholarships to attend will be up to $1,000. Students will be encouraged to share housing after the awardees are selected.

- A two- to-three-page essay that includes the following:
- Your motivations for attending
- How you expect the forum will inform your education and/or your current work with student organizations on campus
- How you anticipate using what you learn in your future personal or professional life
- How you might share what you learn with peers upon your return to campus
- An estimated budget that includes travel, hotel or housing accommodations, and food costs, and describes your willingness to share costs with other students.
