There are a variety of grants available to conference attendees and presenters.
More information regarding these grants will be available soon.
Newcomer Professional Development Grant
Open to people who have been in the field of international education exchange for less than one year and who have never attended a MAIE conference. This grant was established to encourage individuals to attend the conference and to assist them in getting professionally oriented. Individuals who meet the qualifications and who are interested in applying for the grant should submit a one page proposal on why they believe they qualify and how obtaining this grant will contribute to their professional growth. There are only a limited number of Newcomer Professional Development Grants available each year. These grants are awarded up to $150.00 to cover direct conference costs (travel, hotel, registration fee, and meals).
This grant is for students who are currently working or volunteering with an international office and are interested in a career in international education. MAIE will waive conference registration if a student is awarded a grant.
Best of State Grant
For anyone whose session is accepted at NAFSA Regional, MAIE will help defray the costs by providing conference related expenses (not to exceed $250.00). The MAIE Team will contact the best of state award recipient(s) after the conference.
