NORDP 2020 Conference Travel Award Applications Open

NORDP is now accepting applications for Conference Attendance Awards for the 12th Annual Research Development Conference in San Antonio, TX, for those in need of financial support beyond what their institutions or organizations will provide. Applicants may request a registration waiver and/or up to 3 nights hotel accommodation.

Conference Attendance Awards are not available to current and prior NORDP Board of Directors members, Affiliate Members or consultants. Anyone who has received travel support from NORDP in the last three years (2017-2019) is not eligible in 2020. PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE UNTIL YOU ARE NOTIFIED OF THE STATUS OF YOUR ATTENDANCE AWARD. We will contact applications with decisions before the early-bird registration window closes.

These awards support NORDP’s mission to enhance the diversity of our membership and member institutions. Members who are new to NORDP, attending their first NORDP conference, identify as part of a group that they believe to be underrepresented in NORDP, or represent Minority-Serving Institutions are strongly encouraged to apply.NORDP 2020 email signature v2

Conference Attendance Grants do not fully cover the 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 conference attendance costs.

Grant recipients are expected to volunteer at the conference in May and serve on a NORDP committee or subcommittee following the 2020 Conference.

Apply HERE by February 24, 2020. If you are a first-time user of NORDP’s InfoReady Review site, please create your account by clicking “register” in the upper right corner (the site is not linked to NORDP member logins).
