  • Call for State Award Nominations

    As international educators, you have the opportunity to submit nominations for an individual in the field of international education who has shown outstanding years of service to their state.  The projects and/or services sited in their nomination must be of state impact. One certificate will be awarded in each state presented at the state meeting. The award winner will receive recognition at the Region III Meeting and receive complimentary registration for the Region III Conference.


    Deadline to submit nominations will be on March 15, 2020.




    Nominations can be submitted via the google doc form HERE. The awards committee, made up of the Region III chair stream and state representatives will review the nominations and make a decision.

  • Call for Advocacy Day Scholarship Applications!

    Dear Region III NAFSAns,
    NAFSA Region III is once again enthusiastically supporting Advocacy Day 2020. The dates are March 16-17, 2020, and Region III is providing 6 scholarships (travel grants) of $1000 each.
    How to apply: Send an email requesting to be considered for the scholarship including:

    1) a statement of interest to attend Advocacy Day and why

    2) CV

    3) any other supporting documents you wish – but must include a letter of support from your institution/supervisor.

    Send email and all documents to Adria Baker at: abaker@rice.edu
    Deadline: December 16, 2019
    Review of Applications: The scholarship applications will be reviewed by a committee made up by the Region III Chair Stream and State Liaisons.
    All Advocacy Day participants will need to register themselves (even scholarship recipients). The Early Bird registration is January 22, 2020. (https://www.nafsa.org/policy-and-advocacy/take-action/advocacy-day).

    Reimbursement for Scholarship:  Each scholarship recipient needs to pay travel costs up front and then submit receipts for reimbursement for up to $1000.  The costs include registration, travel to DC, some meals (most meals are covered for the two days), hotel (could room with someone to share cost), ground transportation to and from airports. A registration code will be given to scholarship awardees to waive early bird registration. 

    Recipients need not be first-timers (but priority will go to: 1) first-timers, and 2) all four Region III states' representation), and ALL are encouraged to take advantage of this great opportunity!

    This is a unique opportunity to meet your 2 Senators and 1 Representative (or their staffers) face-to-face, talk about the issues affecting international education, as well as receive excellent professional development training from NAFSA Public Policy experts, which not only helps our country, but can help you in your profession and at work. At NAFSA's Advocacy Day, you represent your state, as well as representing NAFSA Region III.

    Apply now for the Region III scholarship for the Adria Baker Advocacy Day 2020 Travel Grant and make a significant difference in international education! Check out the website for schedule and registration

    Note: You do not need a Region III travel scholarship to attend. Anyone can register and attend Advocacy Day. These are important times to have conversations with your Senators and Representatives about balanced immigration policies and laws. We, international educators, can and do make a positive difference with shaping the laws of our country.
