NCFR Student Access Grant

Grant Description

The National Council on Family Relations (NCFR) is committed to redressing systemic racism and opening doors where racial and ethnic barriers stand. To ensure inclusion of People of Color in the discipline of Family Science, NCFR announces the launch of the NCFR Student Access Grant. The grant will support registration fees for the 2021 NCFR Annual Conference for new and existing members and 1 year of membership for new student members* from historically marginalized racial or ethnic populations. NCFR membership and annual conference participation provides opportunities critical to academic and professional development and advancement:

  • Exposure to the varied pedagogy of Family Science
  • Enhanced learning with conference plenary, special sessions, posters, and workshops
  • Access to emerging research with journals, publications, and webinars
  • Interaction with universities’ students and faculty and clinical researchers and practitioners using online discussion groups and joining NCFR sections and focus groups
  • Peer-to-peer networking and mentoring opportunities with established membership programs
  • Exposure to potential employers with access to job postings

*New student members will be given NCFR membership in addition to conference registration. This excludes lapsed and/or previous members.
