IACLEA does not normally provide honoraria or pay any travel or registration expenses. However, a limited number of $500 need-based scholarships are available for presenters from IACLEA member institutions who are selected, but whose institutions cannot afford to send them to the conference. To be considered, please submit a statement of need with your Call for Proposal submission explaining the hardship that exists.
While it is not required, all presenters are encouraged to register for the conference. Selected presenters from IACLEA member institutions will receive a $50 discounted registration fee.
