NAIMUN XLIX saw the introduction of our comprehensive financial aid program, a program that assist schools with the heavy financial burden of traveling to the conference and staying at the Washington Hilton. At NAIMUN, we believe that socioeconomic situations should never be a barrier to attend this conference and grow from this educational experience. Each year, NAIMUN is proud to distribute thousands of dollars to schools and individuals that need financial assistance. At NAIMUN LVII, we look forward to further expanding NAIMUNAid and helping as many schools as possible attend NAIMUN. This is rooted in the Georgetown International Relations Association, Inc. (GIRA)’s commitment to making the international relations education programs we offer as accessible as possible.
The NAIMUNAid program is a step forward in making NAIMUN accessible to a wider range of high school students around the world. We offer scholarships both to individuals as well as whole delegations. Please note that, as we have a limited budget for financial aid, we cannot guarantee that all applicants will receive the amount requested. In order to be considered for NAIMUNAid, the applicant must have already registered for NAIMUN LVII, for which the form can be found here. The application for entire delegations can be found below.
What does NAIMUNAid cover?
The following costs may be covered by NAIMUNAid:
NAIMUNAid for Delegations
NAIMUN has a strong commitment to allowing underserved schools send delegations to our conference. Within our NAIMUNAid application, we have also included guidelines through which delegations can fundraise for our conference. Please note that delegations that have shown their desire to attend our conference through fundraising efforts and have demonstrated need will be given priority.
