If your institution cannot contribute to your fees and travel expenses, we encourage you to apply for a grant. Access grants may cover up to half–that is, up to $175–of the reduced registration fee. If you are registering for both the pre-conference and the main conference, grants of up to $225 may be requested. (Graduate and undergraduate students qualify for our $50 student rate, and so are ineligible for these access grants.)
Priority will be given to applications from part-time faculty and staff, and participants from community colleges, HBCUs, TCUs, HSIs, and state schools who would otherwise not be able to attend the conference.
Please apply prior to registering for the conference. If we are able to award a grant, we will supply you with a unique coupon code to apply to your fee during online registration.
