2019 National Charge Syndrome Foundation Conference
August 2-5, 2019
Dallas, Texas
Hilton Anatole

Special Offer for Texas Chargers going to National

Fultz Fellowship Application


In the true form of fellowship, John M. Fultz the grandfather of Jadyn Fultz, a child with CHARGE syndrome, would greet Texas Charger Families as they arrived to the conference with a smile and typically a huge hug welcoming families back to the Charge Retreat for 8 years.  John passed away in 2017 and his love and dedication to our families is missed greatly, but this award is to help carry on that tradition of fellowship. 


The Fultz Fellowship is an award that will be given to selected families in an effort to compensate expenses to attend the National Charge Syndrome Foundation International Conference in the amount of $500.  Applicants must live within the state of Texas and have CHARGE Syndrome or a guardian of an individual with CHARGE syndrome.  Recipients of this Fellowship Award should share the same love and dedication to our charge families as John did.
