If you are interested in attending the conference but are hesitant for financial reasons, we encourage you to apply for a scholarship. The annual NAME conference is organized with the purpose of bringing together a community of educators, researchers, students and citizen scientists who are passionate about marine and aquatic education; a limited number of scholarships and bursaries may be provided to those who would not attend simply because of the cost.

If you are paying by check (payable to Northwest Aquatic and Marine Educators in US funds) or purchase order, please send your payment to NAME:

6800 SW 35th Ave
Portland, OR 97219
