We are now accepting applications for Conference Attendance Grants for the 2018 Annual Research Development Conference for those in need of financial support beyond what their institutions or organizations will provide. Conference Attendance Grants will waive the conference registration fee and may provide 1, 2 or 3 nights hotel accommodations. Regular Members are eligible to apply.
Conference Attendance Awards are not available to current and prior NORDP Board of Directors members, Affiliate Members, or consultants. PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE UNTIL YOU ARE NOTIFIED OF THE STATUS OF YOUR ATTENDANCE GRANT AWARD!
In keeping with NORDP’s goals to enhance membership and encourage diversity, members who are new to NORDP (defined as within the last two years), attending their first Annual Conference, or from a Minority Serving Institution are strongly encouraged to apply. This year, the Board of Directors has prioritized and allocated additional funds to support conference participation for members from underrepresented ethnic or racial minorities.
Conference Attendance Grants do not fully cover all costs of attending the Annual Conference. Efforts must be made by applicants to secure some funding either through their institutions or personally, to cover a significant portion of the costs to attend the conference.
Grant recipients are expected to volunteer at the conference in May and serve on a NORDP committee or subcommittee following the 2018 Conference.
Apply HERE by 8pm EST on Wednesday, February 21, 2018.
We hope to see you at the Conference, which will be held May 7-9, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, VA. Follow @NORDP_official on Twitter for all the latest #NORDP2018 updates.
