Texas Tech University

Registration Assistance Award


The Annual Conference on the Advancement of Women comes but once a year and we are looking forward to seeing you there!

The Women's Studies Program offers a limited number of registration assistance awards. Funding for this award is made possible by the Division of Institutional Diversity, Equity & Community Engagement.

Students at Texas Tech or another higher education institution with a demonstrated need for financial assistance are encouraged to apply. Particular consideration will be given to assisting student presenters and emerging scholars who have not previously received registration assistance in the past.

The registration assistant awards are also intended to encourage the participation of individuals from under-represented constituencies at Texas Tech. 

Finally, please note that we are unable to offer travel grants at this time.

Applications are available now. The application deadline is April 13, 2016.


Assistance is awarded based on the following:

  • The candidate's application
  • The candidate's ability to express himself or herself
