Nominate Students to Compete

The school nomination process will be open from December 1, 2020 until January 20, 2021. 

Nominators will provide the names of at least one and up to five students to participate in the competition.

Students will be randomly assigned to teams and will be paired with students from other universities.

The competition is open to master’s students only. Undergraduates may not apply nor be nominated. The competition only open to NASPAA member institutions. If your school is in the process of becoming a member institution, it is still eligible to participate.

Once we receive your nominations, we will reach out to the students individually to confirm their attendance in the competition. Each student will have to fill out a separate registration form.

Each school can only nominate five students to compete. Other interested students can apply once the nomination phase is over.

Finally, there is a $20 USD fee to nominate each student — which will be assessed on the nomination page. 

NOTE: The form below requires a credit card payment. If you would like to pay the registration fee by check or wire, please click here.

Please refer to NASPAA’s cancellation/refund policy here.  If you experience problems with this page, please Contact Us.
