Registration

In an effort to create a meaningful and personal experience for you, enrollment for this institute is limited. Applications are requested and admission decisions are made on a rolling basis. As we expect the Institute to reach capacity quickly, applicants are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible.  All applications must be submitted by October 2, 2017 for consideration.  Participants will be notified of application decisions not later than October 20th, 2017

Please be prepared to complete an application and attach a current C.V./resume. Participants should plan to arrive by Sunday, November 12 at 8:30 AM to check-in with the Institute starting promptly at 9AM. Participants can depart after the institute concludes on Sunday, November 12 at 5PM however, there will be a dinner at 6PM.

We wanted to make this institute as affordable as possible. Part of this institute is to make sure that folks can create a network to bring forward at the regional conference. We recognize some folks cannot afford to go to the entire regional conference so, it will not be required that you sign up for the regional conference in order to attend the Ubuntu Institute, however we strongly encourage those who can afford to attend both the institute and conference sign up for both.

Registration information will be provided with acceptance notifications. The fee to attend the institute is $120.00. There is a separate fee to attend the Regional conference and separate hotel fee.

Registration as a member is based on individual membership status. You must be a member of NASPA to apply to this institute. Membership gives you the conference registration and a year of membership for less than the non-member registration fee. Visit the Membership section of the NASPA website to learn about membership types.

Scholarships Available

There are a  limited number of scholarships to applicants who would otherwise be unable to attend the Institute.  Each scholarship of $120.00 will be applied to the accepted applicant's registration fee.  This amount covers the entire registration fee for NASPA Ubuntu Institute Fee.
