Financial Support

We are offering registration waivers and financial support to broaden participation and access for the 2022 CNPS Conference.

The CNPS Conference is committed to opening the door to expanded ways of knowing and diverse voices in the native plant and conservation movement. Interested attendees that face economic barriers, underrepresentation, and/or historic marginalization are eligible for financial support. Financial support opportunities include both a waiver of registration fees as well a $500 stipend to assist with travel and accommodations. Financial support is limited, decisions will be made based on availability of funds and expressed need.

Submission Deadline

The deadline to submit a financial support request is August 15, 2022.

If you already applied for financial support along with an oral presentation, poster, or lightning talk submission, you do not need to submit another request.


If your financial support request is granted, you will be notified with an acceptance email by September 9, 2022.

*Please note, since you will be notified after early registration ends on August 15, if you are not awarded financial support we will provide you with a discount code to still receive early registration pricing.
