Pre-Conference Institute Application Online Form – Fill Out by Invitation Only

Please note: the deadline to submit your Pre-Conference Institute application to present at the upcoming National Indian Nations Conference has been extended to Thursday, June 30, 2016. You are cordially invited to submit an application to present a Pre-Conference Institute. These daylong Pre-Conference Institutes provide an opportunity to explore a subject in much more depth than is possible in a 90 minute conference workshop. Pre-Conference Institute subject matter should be generally relevant to the conference theme, goals, and audience. All Pre-Conference Institutes will be held on Wednesday December 7, 2016. Pre-Conference Institutes start at 9:00 am and conclude at 5:00 pm, with a break at noon for lunch (on your own). 

Please note that most applications for Pre-Conference Institutes are either solicited or self-funded (that is, all presenters’ costs are paid by the sponsoring agency), but very limited presenter lodging and/or travel scholarships may be available. Pre-Conference Institutes are open to all conference participants on a first come, first served basis. 

If your Pre-Conference Institute is limited to specific participants (such as tribal grantees only) or planned for more than just the day of Wednesday December 7th, please use our Conference Related Event Form instead.
