Yes. If your institution cannot contribute to your fees and travel expenses, we encourage you to apply for an access grant. Access grants will cover 50% ($200) of the early bird registration fee. Priority will be given to applications from part-time faculty and staff, and participants from community colleges, HBCUs, TCUs, HSIs, and state schools who would otherwise not be able to attend the conference. Please apply
prior to registering for the conference. We will continue to accept applications and award access grants until the access grant fund is depleted. If we are able to award a grant, we will supply you with a unique coupon code to apply to your fee during online registration at 1440.org.
