NCFR Student Access Grant

Donate to the Student Access Grant

NCFR is committed to addressing systemic racism and opening doors where racial and ethnic barriers exist. Your generous donation to the NCFR Student Access Grant will make more grants possible that ensure the inclusion of students from historically marginalized racial communities in the discipline of Family Science. We plan to provide 10 grants. Grant applications will open this summer. Learn more


Accommodations for Disabilities

  • NCFR and Hyatt Regency Bellevue want to ensure that all individuals can participate fully in the NCFR conference. For needs related to guest accommodations, please contact the hotel directly at 425-462-1234.
  • NCFR can provide reasonable accommodations for disabilities for participation in conference sessions when you make a request in advance. It may not be possible to provide certain accommodations when requests are made at the conference. Neither NCFR nor hotel staff can provide personal assistance/aide services. If you would like to request an accommodation for the conference, please contact [email protected]


Cancellations and Refunds

Registration refund requests for the 2024 NCFR Annual Conference (the “Conference”) must be submitted to NCFR in writing and emailed or postmarked on or before Oct. 17, 2024, to the following email address or mailing address: [email protected] or NCFR, 661 LaSalle St., St. Paul MN  55114. No refunds will be granted for any requests received after Oct. 17, 2024, regardless of the reason for the request. All registration refunds are subject to a processing fee of $60 ($30 for students). If the conference registration was part of a membership bundle, only the conference registration will be refunded net of the processing fee. The membership portion of the bundle will not be refunded. There will be no registration refunds for Conference workshops unless NCFR cancels the Conference or the workshop. If NCFR cancels the Conference or the workshop, registrants will be offered a full refund. Should circumstances arise that result in postponement of the Conference, NCFR has the right to either issue a full refund or transfer registration to the same event at a new date. If, for reasons outside of the control of NCFR, the Conference is presented as a virtual Conference rather than an in-person Conference, NCFR will not be liable for any Conference registration fees, hotel expenses, and/or travel expenses that registrants may have incurred in connection with the Conference. Before you cancel, however, we'd like you to consider keeping your registration and accessing the conference through Bridge 2024. The difference between the full cost of registration and the cost of Bridge 2024, less the processing fee, will be refunded. If you transfer your registration, you will have access for a year to Bridge 2024 sessions.
