The following opportunities are available for NACCB 2020 financial support –

Financial Assistance Grants

Applications will be reviewed and applicants notified on a rolling basis, with a final deadline of July 21, 2020

Those awarded financial assistance will receive a registration waiver. *Do not register for NACCB 2020 until you have submitted your financial assistance application and received a decision from NACCB organizers.* The below criteria will be given priority for financial assistance on a rolling basis. Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible; we hope to meet everyone’s needs but do not have limitless funding available.

Please do not request a registration waiver unless you are truly experiencing financial hardship and would not otherwise be able to attend NACCB 2020. Please only apply for financial aid if you are committed to attending and actively participating in the online congress.
