WFRN Registration and Membership Support Awards

The generous donations donors and sponsors make possible a limited number of funded memberships and registrations to support attendance at the WFRN’s conference.

If you are a scholar with financial need and have a paper or session accepted in the biennial conference, you are eligible to apply.  Review of applications will begin on February 10, 2024.  Applications will be accepted until funds are exhausted.

All conference attendees must pay their registration/membership fees by February 15, 2024 if their submissions are to remain in the conference program. If an applicant receives notification of an award prior to February 15, their fees will be waived and no payments are necessary.  If an applicant receives an award after that date, or if they have already paid their fees, their registration/membership fees will be reimbursed.

Awards are limited to conference registration fees and membership fees.  If your institution can pay either of these fees, we ask that you seek funds from that source and not apply here.

Eligible applicants must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Has an active research/teaching program that focuses on work-family concerns
  • Has a session, paper, poster or roundtable accepted in the biennial conference
  • Demonstrates financial circumstances inhibit conference attendance
