Scholarship eligibility is limited to students, government workers, retired professionals, arbitrators/mediators who are no longer active on the AAA roster, and others as may be determined by the AAA. To request a registration fee scholarship, please send an email to Include your current position and affiliation, and a brief description of the basis for your registration fee scholarship request.
