Participation Assistance Fund (PAF)

This conference would not be possible without the dedicated support of members and the revenue from conference registration fees. APAP has lowered conference registration fees overall post-pandemic, however we understand that for some members the full registration costs still remain a barrier at this time. 

The Participation Assistance Fund (PAF) offers $300 off of the $695 early bird registration rate to those who need additional support to attend conference. To apply for support through the Participation Assistance Fund, complete this form by the EXTENDED deadline of September 28, 2023 at 5 p.m. (EDT). Please note: Notifications will be sent on a rolling basis. Please wait for notification before registering as PAF funds cannot be applied retroactively. PAF funds only apply to the early bird rate and cannot be combined with other discounts.
A limited number of partial conference registration scholarships will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis for the in-person conference. APAP invites members in need to apply for scholarship opportunities to subsidize their in-person conference registration.

Scholarships will be offered on a rolling basis. The deadline to apply for a conference scholarship was October 26, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. (EDT). You will be notified whether or not you have received a scholarship by Wednesday, November 2.

Student Volunteer Opportunities

Are you a full-time student or do you know one? Student volunteers gain valuable exposure to the field while supporting the APAP|NYC conference. If selected as a Student Volunteer, Volunteers receive free registration and have access to discounted hotel rates. To volunteer, you must be a current undergraduate, graduate or doctoral student.
