First-Time Attendee Mid-Level Scholarship | Deadline: Extended to Dec 3

For the first time, our valuable NASPA Sponsors and Exhibitors are taking part in an effort to fund the registration for 100 first-time mid-level NASPA participants over the 2018 and 2019 conferences. The goal is to give 50 scholarships in 2018 and 50 scholarships in 2019 to commemorate our 100th NASPA Anniversary. Professional level will be verified through the NASPA profile information and current résumé.

Selected recipients will attend a sponsorship recipient breakfast on Tuesday, March 6, with a colleague of their choice, and a complimentary professional member registration to the NASPA Annual Conference in the amount of $450. Although NASPA membership is not required, preference will be given to current NASPA members.
