The AIR FORUM SCHOLARSHIP helps defray the cost of attending the AIR Forum for a current NEAIR member who would otherwise not be able to attend. This scholarship was established in 2015 with the generous support of the Association for Institutional Research through its AIR Affiliated Organization Forum Travel Grant.
The $1000 award consists of a $500 grant from AIR and $500 from NEAIR. The emphasis of this conference scholarship is to support the lifelong learning and development of those who are maturing in our professional field by providing opportunities to:
- refresh and/or enhance technical/analytical skills;
- learn about trending topics in higher education, institutional research, assessment, and effectiveness;
- learn about best practices in the field; and
- network with colleagues from across the nation and throughout the world.
The scholarship monies will be applied directly to cover the recipient's AIR membership fee (if applicable) and conference registration fee. The remainder can be used towards the costs of travel to and from the conference, hotel, meals, and workshops. For more information about the 2017 AIR Forum, visit http://forum.airweb.org/2017/pages/home.
The call for applications will open February 6, 2017 with a deadline of March 3, 2017. Applicants will be notified of the results by March 31.
