Application for Graduate Student Volunteer Opportunity
The Forum is pleased to make available a limited amount of volunteer opportunities to assist graduate students who may have difficulty paying to attend The Forum’s Annual Conference. The purpose of the Annual Conference Graduate Student Volunteer Opportunity is to offer a complimentary registration to applicants who commit to volunteering 8 or more hours at the conference. Volunteers will assist Forum staff with tasks such as preparing conference bags, checking in attendees, and greeting and directing participants throughout conference spaces.
Full-time graduate students are eligible to apply, and proof of enrollment or class load are required.
Recipients of this opportunity are expected to work 8 or more hours during the week of the conference, with at least half of the hours being worked during conference hours of Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. When not volunteering, volunteers are free to attend events and sessions of the conference. The Forum reserves the right to invoice for the cost of full registration if all volunteer hours are not met, but any conference events attended.
Applications must be received no later than December 6. Final decision will be made by December 13. Opportunities are limited, and all applicants may not be selected. Any applicants not selected will be able to register at our Early Bird Graduate Student Rate of $275.
Please provide the information below along with proof of Graduate Enrollment, and submit via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please explain how you would benefit from your participation in The Forum’s Annual Conference. Please also describe any past experience as a conference attendee or volunteer, either at The Forum’s Conference or another conference or event.
