Region VII is pleased to offer travel grants to support participation in our annual regional conference. 

Grant Amounts: awardees will have the early-bird conference registration fee waived, plus be reimbursed for two nights the conference hotel. The funds for the hotel nights will be reimbursed based on actual costs as indicated on submitted receipts. Awardees must stay at the conference hotel in order to be reimbursed.

Special consideration are given to individuals from two-year colleges and/or Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Serving Institutions, including Hispanic Serving Institutions and Tribal Colleges; first time attendees; and/or state institutions with significant budgetary constraints. In most, if not all, cases, grants are awarded to those who have not previously received a grant or award from Region VII. Priority are given to applicants who work or reside in Region VII.

Complete Applications must be received by Monday, August 28, 2023

Awardees will be notified by Tuesday, September 5, 2023; Early Bird Registration instructions will be provided in the notification email. Conference Grant Applicants should not register until after the award notification date (if you have registered prior to completing the Conference Grant Application, please email [email protected] for further instructions). Awardees who miss the Early-Bird Registration deadline will be responsible for the additional registration fee amount.
