National Conference Scholarships and Grants
The National Association for Interpretation scholarship program is for college students who are studying natural, historical, and cultural interpretation or a closely related field with career aspirations in the field of interpretation. The goal of the scholarship program is to recognize students who have the potential to make an outstanding contribution to the field of interpretation. Scholarships are awarded to both undergraduate and graduate students, and may include conference registration, travel, lodging, and per diem.
The College and University Academic Section has been the coordinator for this national project for nearly 15 years and is proud to be its supporter.
Student scholarship applications are generally due around April 15 each year.
NAI has a program to provide grant assistance to professional interpreters to help offset the costs of professional development through NAI. Limited funds are available as part of NAI’s overall scholarship program, and can apply to attendance at the national conference.
Professional Grant applications generally open at the same time as registration and open for one month.
Applications will open in May with a deadline of June 15, 2023.

NAI communities often offer scholarships to the National Conference. We will post those opportunities here as they become available.
