Conference Attendance Grants Due Feb. 12

NORDP invites applications for attendance grants for the 2019 Annual NORDP Research Development Conference in Providence, Rhode Island (April 28 – May 1) from members in need of financial support beyond what their institutions or organizations can provide. Conference Attendance Grants will cover the Conference registration fee and may provide hotel accommodations for 1, 2 or 3 nights. Related other expenses, such as travel, are expected to be contributed by the grantee’s institution and/or the grantee.

Aligned with NORDP’s goals to increase diversity and promote inclusive excellence throughout the organization, we encourage applications from our members who are from under-represented minority populations or who are employed by Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) or other Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs). All Regular Members in good financial standing who haven’t received Conference Attendance Grants in the last 3 years are eligible to apply.  Exception: These grants are not available to current and prior NORDP Board Members, Affiliate Members, or Consultants.

Grantees are expected to volunteer at the 2019 Annual Conference and to serve on a NORDP committee, subcommittee, or working group in the year following the Conference.

The application deadline is Tuesday, February 12 at Noon, Eastern Standard Time.  PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE UNTIL YOU ARE NOTIFIED OF THE STATUS OF YOUR APPLICATION (by March 1)!

NORDP Annual Conference Attendance Scholarships Includes Support for Diversity

 

NORDP is pleased to announce that we will offer a limited number of full and partial scholarships again this year for those with financial need who wish to attend our Annual Research Development Conference in Denver, Colorado, May 8 – 10.   In keeping with NORDP’s goals to increase overall membership and to encourage diversity, we are for the first time designating two scholarships for underrepresented racial and ethnic minority applicants, as well as giving priority to applications from new members and first-time Conference attendees.  It is expected that each applicant will approach his/her institution or organization to request co-funding to attend the Annual Conference.

Please watch for the availability of the Conference Attendance Scholarship Application on the NORDP website soon.  The deadline for applications will be February 13.
