NIIC 2019 SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

NIIC 2109 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN 

DEADLINE TO APPLY EXTENDED TO WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 18 @ 5PM EASTERN

As part of our commitment to ensuring the broadest participation possible at NEW AMERICAN DREAMS: National Immigrant Integration Conference (NIIC), we provide a cohort of Scholarships each year. Anyone who is interested to attend NIIC is welcome to apply.

Due to limited funds, Scholarships cover Registration fees only; at this time, NIIC is not able to provide travel support. 

To be considered for a Scholarship, you must complete this online application by 5PM Eastern on WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 18. If you have difficulties with this form, please contact Conference Assistant Cynthia Friedman at cfriedman@partnershipfornewamericans.org.

Awardees will be notified on a rolling basis beginning September 18.

NIIC typically receives 100-200+ applicants from across the country. Priority is given to:

  • Applicants who have not attended NIIC in the past

  • Are from groups that are under-represented at NIIC

  • Those who would not otherwise be able to attend. 

We also value applications from leaders who have been active in the immigrant and refugee rights and integration fields as well as leaders connected to the work of NPNA member groups.

NIIC has a limited number of Scholarships available and we are typically not able to meet every request. We do encourage all Scholarship applicants to also explore other possible avenues of support.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to NIIC’s scholarship fund, please contact cynthia@partnershipfornewamericans.org.
