NAAHP 2024 Travel Grant Application Process

The NAAHP Board of Directors acknowledges that some of our advisors & community college members may encounter financial constraints that hinder their ability to attend the national conference. In response, the current NAAHP Board, in collaboration with the regional associations, has established travel grant awards to support advisors who will not receive full funding or will receive only partial funding from their home institutions to attend the upcoming 2024 National Conference in Cincinnati, OH, scheduled for June 26th – June 30th, 2024.

NAAHP MSI Travel Grant Opportunity

We are pleased to offer additional travel funding sponsored by the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC). Eligible federally recognized MSI institutions may apply for up to $750 in travel grant funding. Recipients are encouraged to attend a special pre-conference event* sponsored by AAVMC on June 26th at 12:30 PM, ET.

*This event is open to all 

Eligibility (Both NAAHP & MSI)

  • Applicants must maintain current membership status as Advisor or Community College Advisor members of NAAHP. 
  • Continuation of employment as pre-health advisors will be concurrent with their membership throughout the submission of their travel expense details. 

Submission Requirements

  • Complete a single Online Application Form (Deadline December 1st, 2023) 
  • Submit a concise essay outlining how Participation in the Meeting will benefit you and your students.  

Cost References

  • Conference hotels average approx. $200/night (pre-tax) 
  • Flights to Cincinnati: Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (Code: CVG) 

Note: Priority may be given to applicants who can provide evidence of financial need, such as a lack of full or partial funding from their home institutions to attend the meeting. Applicants should be aware that NAAHP cannot guarantee a travel grant award to all who apply, as a finite number of both travel grants are available. Applications will be thoroughly reviewed by a committee composed of representatives from the four regions and members of the NAAHP Board. The committee will evaluate applicants based on the provided materials and other relevant criteria. Successful applicants awarded a travel grant will receive direct notification of their award via email. Monitoring your email for further instructions and details regarding the grant is essential.
