Participating in NAFSA regional or national conferences and events provides an opportunity to acquire and exchange information and is also an excellent way to begin building a personal network of contacts in the field of international education. Our region is proud to offer opportunities to those seeking financial support that will allow them to become further involved in our region.

Advocacy Day

NAFSA Advocacy Day is an annual opportunity to voice your support for international education and exchange while expanding your network and increasing your skillset. Advocacy Day takes place over two days and includes an integrated set of advocacy training and practice activities, anchored by a morning of visits to each member's congressional delegation on Capitol Hill.

NAFSA Region VIII supports colleagues who wish to advance their professional development through attendance at the Advocacy Day by offering a grant to help defray the costs of attendance. Contact [email protected] for more information.
