Applications for a Region VI travel award for the 2022 NCURA PRA and FRA Conferences are now being accepted. Region VI will be supporting up to two (2) travel awards of $1,000 each to offset the cost of attendance at the NCURA PRA or FRA Conference, to be held March 14-18, 2022, in New Orleans, LA.
Each award is intended to assist with the travel costs associated with meeting attendance.
The deadline for receipt of applications and nominations is Wednesday, February 16, 2022.
Applicants must be research administrators from within the Region VI geographic area (Alaska, California, Guam, Hawaii, Nevada, Northern Marianas Islands, Oregon, Samoa, and Washington). Applicants need not be current members of NCURA in order to apply for or to be awarded a Region VI Travel Award.
Applications and support letters must demonstrate the potential benefit of the award.
The application and/or the support letter(s) must demonstrate that the applicant has secured their manager or supervisor's approval to attend the meeting.
