The Alliance for Higher Education in Prison is pleased to announce that the 11th National Conference on Higher Education in Prison (NCHEP) Registration and Financial Aid portal is now open. The online portal will remain open until November 10, 2021. However, we request that you complete the registration process by October 15, 2021 in order to assist the planning team in its efforts. This year, in addition to the Financial Aid application, the community is presented with a sliding scale structure through which the NCHEP Planning Team wishes to acknowledge the attendees’ different access to resources.
The registration fee contributes to the overall costs associated with the conference and pays for all your meals (dinner on Thursday night; breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and coffee breaks on Friday and Saturday; breakfast on Sunday). The registration portal will also include information on booking your stay at the conference hotel (the Marriott Denver Tech Center) at a discounted rate.
Financial Aid packages are available for anyone without institutional support to attend the 11th NCHEP. People who are formerly incarcerated will be prioritized for Financial aid. Financial aid awards will be determined by the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison Advisory Board and Team.

Financial aid awards will cover the cost of travel, accommodations, registration and other reimbursable expenses. Award notification will begin on August 20, 2021. Financial aid will continue to be awarded on a rolling basis until funds are depleted. Learn more about eligibility and Apply for financial aid.
We look forward to seeing you in Denver!
