Advocacy Day Grant

Do you value international education? Are you interested in having your voice heard? If so, would you like Region X to help pay to get you there? We hope that you will consider participating in NAFSA’s 2020 Advocacy Day and submitting an application for funding support.

This year’s meeting will be held March 16-17, 2020 in Washington D.C., and will offer tools to strategize, prepare, and deliver messages on the importance of international education and global engagement. Registration is now open and note that the early bird deadline is January 22.

To make that goal more attainable, NAFSA Region X will once again dedicate grant funding for members and professionals within New York and New Jersey to attend. If you are interested in this opportunity, please complete the attached application. Although this process is not an arduous process, there are a few important things to note:

  • We ask for a short statement of purpose about your goals for attending Advocacy Day, including specific outcomes or experiences that would be beneficial to you, your institution, and/or your state. Please indicate any prior involvement with this program as well.
  • We encourage you to include an estimated budget of participation costs for registration, accommodations, and travel, irrespective of the amount requested.
  • In return for grant funding, recipients may be asked to present at an upcoming state or regional conference.

The team will accept grant applications through Friday, December 13, 2019 by 5:00 p.m. The grant committee will determine recipients and allocate approved funding, and all grant decisions will be communicated by December 20, 2019.
