Assembly Scholarships


Through the generosity of donors to the Fr. John Pavlik Scholarship Fund, up to 30 scholarships are available for the CMSM 2019 National Assembly this year.

The discounted registration rate for a Pavlik Scholar is $285, which is less than half of the regular cost of a National Assembly registration. Registration includes all materials, three breakfasts, two coffee breaks daily, Wednesday lunch, the opening reception, and the closing banquet.

Hotel reservations must be made separately, using the link in the registration form.
