AIR Forum Scholarship

The AIR Forum Scholarship was created in 2015 to support the lifelong learning and development of mid-career professionals by helping to defray the cost of attending the AIR Forum for a current NEAIR member. The $1,000 award consists of matching grants from AIR and NEAIR in the amount of $500 each.

Ambassador Grants

Ambassador grants provide matching funds for a NEAIR member to attend a conference other than the NEAIR conference. The maximum award is $800. The primary emphasis of the Ambassador Grant is on participation at "non-mainstream" conferences, with the aim of broadening the horizons of both the attendee and the NEAIR membership at large. Non-institutional research conferences will be given preference.

Memorial Conference Grant (Deadline September 20, 2020)

Normally the conference grants provide funds to two members up to $800 each to help defray the costs of attending the NEAIR Annual Conference. This program is meant to assist members who would otherwise not be able to attend the NEAIR Annual Conference. Due to the pandemic, and the lower cost of our online conference, the 2020 Memorial Conferent Grant will cover $100 of the $130 conference fees for a larger number of recipients. 

Research Grant (Call for Applications in September; Deadline October, 2020)

The NEAIR Research Grant provides funds for members to conduct research that is also of interest to the membership at large. The maximum award is $1,000 and may be used only for direct research costs.
