We continue to follow the rapidly evolving developments around COVID-19 and at this point, a face-to-face gathering in Miami this October carries unnecessary risk. We are excited to announce that CIO 2020 will be delivered as a virtual experience.
In accordance with these changes, we are modifying the scholarship program requirements. Please note, as we will not be traveling, the travel stipend will not be offered this year.
