Past Conference Attendee Comments

The 2017 NSPA Conference was the best conference that I have attended. I loved the increased membership among universities and also so much appreciated the conversation between the scholarship organizations and the schools.

We are new to NSPA and wanted to connect with other professionals in this sector. I found the conference to be very valuable in both meeting practitioners and learning about various vendors for support.

Wonderful conference! Thank you for all your hard work and leadership. We often work alone in our offices, and getting to connect to this support network for what I do is an absolute lifeline!

The NSPA Annual Conference is a great venue for institutions and scholarship providers to come together and collaborate. Sharing best practices, gaining invaluable resources, and networking with other practitioners are the primary reasons why I look forward to attending each year!
