Financial Assistance to Attend MLA ‘22

MLA makes financial assistance available to help you attend MLA'22 for both in-person and virtual meeting expereinces. Be sure to also check with local chapters for additional funding opportunities.  

No-Charge Virtual Conference Registration

Applicant Eligibility:

  • current 2022 member of MLA
  • health information professional
  • fulfill one of the following criteria based on employment status:
    • unemployed
    • if furloughed: no funding is available from the employer
    • if employed: no funding is available from the employer
  • unable to financially self-fund registration

The applicant must provide the following information:

  • presenting at annual meeting
  • name of current or former employer and contact information
  • justification or additional information regarding employment status and funding availability
  • previous MLA annual conference assistance

Priority consideration will be given to those who:

  • are presenting at MLA '22 
  • have not previously received MLA conference assistance


  • MLA profile information must be current. 
  • First come-first serve: applications are reviewed by a jury in the order they were received.
  • Decisions are at the discretion of the jury.
  • MLA’s objective is to provide a reply within 2-3 weeks of the application.
  • If awarded the applicant must have paid 2022 membership dues and accept the offer within 14 days of notification. 
  • Recipients will receive a unique enrollment code (in April) to complete the registration process for a free virtual registration. Refunds will not be given to awardees who are already registered as part of an institutional registration or individual registration.
  • Free registration is non-transferable and cannot be applied to in-person registration. 
  • Free registration is not subject to tax (i.e., no W9/1099 filing).

Please note that funding for the no-charge registrations is limited and designed to support those individuals with genuine significant hardship. If you can afford to self-fund your registration, please consider letting others apply.
