Two Financial Assistance Programs for SBE’s Annual Conference (Apply Within!)

Published on

The Society for Business Ethics and its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee are delighted to announce two exciting initiatives to promote access to SBE’s upcoming annual conference in Chicago. With generous support from Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School of Business and the University of St. Thomas Melrose and The Toro Company Center for Principled Leadership, SBE is providing two tiers of assistance:

  1. Registration and Membership Fee Waiver: This program is targeted to any scholar for whom attending the annual conference would present a substantial financial hardship. It includes a waiver of the registration fee and one year of SBE membership. The application is quick and easy—simply sign a statement of need and provide your contact information. Twenty waivers are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Only individuals who intend to meaningfully participate for the entirety of the conference should apply. Having a paper accepted is not a precondition of receiving a waiver. Apply here.
  2. Conference Grant Program: This program provides financial support to individuals from under-represented geographies. Three applicants will receive one year of SBE membership, a conference registration fee waiver, and a $1000 stipend to defray costs for travel and accommodation at the conference. This year, the Conference Grant Program is open only to scholars from the African continent (the geographic focus will change annually). Applicants must provide a statement of interest, some basic financial information, biographical background, and their submission for the conference. The DEI Committee will evaluate applications on the basis of need and promise. Apply here before Friday, February 16. Notifications sent early March.For more information, contact or
