Funds to offer registration stipends have been generously donated by the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) and are available for people attending: minority-serving institutions in the United States, non-U15 Universities in Canada, or those who reside in under-resourced countries (defined as low- and middle-income economies by the World Bank). A discount is available to any attendee meeting one of these eligibility requirements. Complete the registration form and follow the instructions to receive this discount. While completing the form, if you are unsure if you qualify, contact Robert Beets ([email protected]). IBRO has requested that attendees receiving a stipend must write a brief statement (about 200 words) about what they gained and accomplished by attending. Send statements to Robert ([email protected]) by December 20, 2021.

We also offer the following discounts for groups and individuals. Contact Karen Graham ([email protected]) to discuss these options and available pricing.

  • Group discounts when 5+ people from the same institution are completing paid registrations.
  • Reduced pricing for student groups from a high school or a college courses or department. 
  • Accommodations based on financial need, reviewed by the INS Executive Committee.
