HomeRegistration Grant Policy



ClassCrits, Inc. has up to ten (10) full registration grants to award to eligible conference participants on the basis of an application, the requirements of which are detailed below and which are allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis.  The grants cover only the cost of conference registration for ClassCrits XII. Grants made by ClassCrits, Inc. will be paid directly to the hosting institution on behalf of those who have been selected to receive a grant award.


The deadline for applying for a registration grant is October 1, 2019. However, because the grants are allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis, we encourage early application.  To apply for a grant, after reading the criteria below, please proceed to the ClassCrits Conference Registration link (coming soon!) and complete the Fee Waiver application form (via link at bottom of general registration page) on the ClassCrits website,  If you have problems or questions, please email with “Registration Grant” in the subject heading. 



a. Generally an applicant must have an annual income at or below $50,000 and be a conference participant.

b. A conference participant is a person who has committed to attending the ClassCrits XII annual conference in November 2019 and who has received Conference confirmation that the applicant’s will present intellectual and/or activist-related work, is commenting on such work, or is presenting a Work-In-Progress at the Conference.

c. Grant priorities include students, postgraduates, adjuncts and activists. Though those who hold full-time tenured/tenure-track positions are ineligible for these grants, ClassCrits, Inc. may consider applications from retired faculty and faculty from the Global South.


Exceptions:  Full-time tenured/tenure-track faculty are ineligible for a grant.  The same applies for students, faculty, and staff of the host institution (ClassCrits, Inc. generally expects host institutions to provide funds to cover the costs of attendance for these individuals as well as other local participants).
