We understanding that funding yourself to an event like this can be difficult. Let us make some suggestions to help!
We feel so strongly about getting you here to experience the exceptional programming and collaboration opportunities, that we've gone all out to provide a wide variety of ways to supplement the costs of attending AMSA's Annual Convention. Here's a few:
Remember to Register Early
Register by our early-bird deadline of January 29 and save almost 20% on your registration fees.
Apply for Funds Through AMSA's Scholars & Dollars Program
Through the generous support of our partner, Bank of America, we are offering $100 scholarship to offset the conference registration. Apply early. Application Deadline: January 15
Serve on a Nominations, Credentials or Reference Committee
These committees ensure the smooth functioning of the HOD and national
officer elections and are an excellent way for AMSA members to
get involved nationally. Registration fees are waived for selected committee members. Application Deadline: January 23
All you need to do is ask. You may be able to have your registration fees fully or partially funded if you ask your school to support your participation at AMSA’s Annual Convention. Here’s what you need to know:
Some Schools Do Support Student Participation
Every year AMSA members have been able to attain some financial support by asking their dean of student affairs or similar position.
Timing Is Key
Plan to approach your dean soon before the end of year holidays!
