Don't miss this exciting opportunity! The 19th Annual ANTSHE Conference at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, April 7-10! Located in one of the most culturally diverse cities in the country, Dearborn, MI. 

Attending the ANTSHE Conference will provide you with one of the few, if not the ONLY, opportunity to attend a conference that brings together both Non-Traditional Students and Leaders in Academia, to enrich the lives of and build support for non-traditional students.  The ANTSHE Conference 2016 will provide the following:

 Over 40 educational sessions, round table discussions, and a poster presentation session will teach you how to connect the silos of academics and student services and re-energize your adult learner program. 

 Keynote speakers focusing on key issues impacting non-traditional students in higher education will motivate and invigorate your passion for higher education.

 Non-Trad Student forums, exciting networking opportunities, entertainment, special events, and much more! 

Sponsor an ANTSHE Scholarship today and you will be recognized as a sponsor at the 2016 ANTSHE Conference at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, and present the scholarship yourself to a deserving Nontrad! Contact Dr. R. Lee Viar IV to learn about some of the scholarship and/or sponsorship opportunities available at ANTSHE.

Here are just a few of the sponsorship opportunities at ANTSHE:

-Sponsor a Scholarship to support non-traditional students in their educational endeavors, Learn more...

-Sponsor a Non-Traditional Student with the Conference Scholarship Fund: In the spirit of providing our non-traditional students with networking opportunities, the opportunity to publish, and support and motivation to successfully complete their degree program(s), we believe that no non-traditional student who wants to attend our annual conference should be limited because of the cost of traveling to the conference or lack of funds for registration. Travel and registration costs should not be barriers for non-traditional students to attend a non-traditional student-focused conference celebrating non-trads! To support this goal, ANTSHE has created the Conference Scholarship Fund to help cover the cost of travel expenses.  If you contribute to the Conference Scholarship Fund, you (or your family) will be included in our list of conference sponsors. Individual sponsorship options start at just $50. Learn more...

-Donations to the Computers4College Fund, Learn more...

Call: 301-992-2901 or email Dr. R. Lee Viar IV.
