We are happy to announce that we plan to award two (2) $250 travel grants to offset the costs of traveling to the conference, as well as a limited number of conference registration fee waivers for tutors and directors who plan to attend the CAPTA Conference this year. Applications must be received no later than October 6, 2017. Recipients will be notified no later than October 13, 2017.
NOTE: Registration waivers will be given out prior to conference registration in the form of a discount code to be used on the Eventbrite registration page. If you have applied for a registration waiver, we recommend WAITING to register for the conference until you have been notified of your grant application status; if you receive the grant, you will still need to register for the conference on Eventbrite, but will be given a code to cover the cost of registration.
