Scholarships and support for professional development among our members are a priority for the Sierra Pacific Region. Thanks to the generosity of members who have supported our annual auction and other fundraisers, we are pleased to be able to offer three categories of financial support for professional development opportunities:
You are not required to be a member of NAI Sierra Pacific Region to apply for these funds, but if you are selected to receive a scholarship or a grant you will be required to become a member before receiving your check.
Application information for both Certification and Workshop scholarships may be found below. Please see Interpnet.com for details on NAI’s membership categories.
Our spring workshop for the Sierra Pacific Region will be held in Aptos, CA at Monte Toyon Camp & Retreat Center on March 10 – 12. Applications are due February 1, 2023. Download the application below.

You do not need to be a member of NAI in order to apply for a grant; however, if you are selected you will be required to join NAI before receiving your grant funds.
