The International (IN) Section wants to encourage scholarship with a focus on international families. It also seeks to foster student and new professional research in this area by offering a scholarship to assist with travel expenses to present original research at the National Council on Family Relations Annual Conference.


Two scholarships of $250 each are made available as a contribution towards the travel costs of the student or new professional attending and presenting at the NCFR Annual Conference. The awards are given annually and presented at the IN Section Annual Meeting.

Note: This award is offered only if funds are available. Please check with the IN Section Chair before applying.

  • have originally travelled outside the United States or Canada;
  • be an international student or international new professional living outside the United States or Canada; and
  • attend and be recognized at the International Section Annual Meeting at the NCFR Annual Conference.

Note: International is defined as NOT being a current resident of the United States or Canada.

Preference is given to a person authoring or co-authoring a paper that is presented at the conference. The research should focus on an international issue.
