The ISHA Board of Directors has increased the funding designated to educate its membership. For 2016, as many as three (3) Conference Grants of up to $1,000 (maximum) each and one (1) of up to $3,000 (maximum) will be made available to member institutions. The larger grant (up to $3,000) is available to members outside the United States and Canada. Conference registration fees are waived as part of the packages.
The travel grants are available to regular ISHA member institutions to provide a maximum of $1,000 per person per organization in order that one or more representatives of an organization may attend the ISHA annual conference. An institution may receive a grant once every five (5) years. At least one of the grants must be awarded to a first-time attendee.
The $6,000 for the grants is from the Founders’ Fund, which is supported by initiatives such as a Silent Auction, a Reverse Raffle and monetary gifts from members.
Additionally, up to three (3) Conference Registration-Only Grants, valued at $325, will be offered to member institutions.
Applications for all Conference Grants are due by June 15, 2016. Please click here to download the application.
The 2016 Annual ISHA Conference will be held September 26-28 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and is hosted by Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame.
