Conference Grant

NAFSA Region IV Conference Grants are financial support for Region IV international educators with demonstrated need.   The general Conference Grants cover the cost of full conference registration and we also offer grants modeled after NAFSA's Diversity Impact Program for Tribal Colleges, Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), and Community Colleges within the Region IV area (Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, and South Dakota).  Diversity Impact Grants cover the full conference registration plus a $500 travel grant. Conference Grants cannot be combined with the Very Motivated Presenter (VMP) discount.

LAST YEAR, we had 32 applications for grants and gave out 18.  We expect to provide a similar number this year.

Grants are available for individuals in the following categories:
- Student (seeking entry level ideas to enter International Education Field)
- Newcomer (employed in International Education but new to the field and/or NAFSA)
- Seasoned Professional (more than 5 years of International Education and/or NAFSA experience)
- Professional from Tribal College, HBCU, HSI, and/or Community College (preference will be given to institutions that have not attended a Region IV conference previously)

As a component of the application, please submit a resume and statement of support from a colleague, supervisor, advisor, professor, etc. to Past-Chair, Michael Nelson at: mike@barcelonasae.com

Conference grants cover the full conference registration but do not cover costs for special events or workshops. Individuals awarded a grant will receive a special registration code to use when they register for the conference. If possible, please wait to register for the conference until after August 13th (we will award Conference Grants shortly after the deadline).

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: AUGUST 14, 2019
