We have reserved rooms at the conference site, the Clark Kerr Conference Center at UC Berkeley. Rooms are in residence halls, which share a communal bathroom on the floor, and in suites, which share a bathroom with one other room only.
Single rooms are $82/night (res hall) and $99/night (suites).
Shared rooms (2 beds) are $49/night (res hall) and $60/night (suites).
Housing minimum: we have to meet a housing minimum at the UC conference site, so if you're making a choice between paying for a hotel and paying to stay on site, we encourage you to stay on site! Plus you'll be closer to the action and nestled right into the beautiful Berkeley hills. The dorms are newly renovated, quite spacious, and the nicest college dorms we've ever been in. And you can't beat the price!
We may be able to arrange free housing for a limited number of people. When we have more information about free housing we will post it here.
We have partnered with the Ralph K Morris Foundation to offer scholarships to some conference attendees. The Ralph K Morris Foundation awards scholarships for both registration and travel. Please visit the "Cooperative Leadership Fund" on the Ralph K. Morris Foundation website at www.ralphkmorrisfoundation.org to learn more about the guidelines and criteria for applicants. You will also find an application form at this site. Applications are due no later than June 30. If you have any questions, please contact Jayne Kincade at 612-343-8272 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
USFWC will offer a limited amount of scholarship funds to applicants who do not qualify for Ralph M Morris Foundation funding. Scholarship applications will be reviewed and awarded on a rolling basis. We therefore recommend that you apply first to the Ralph K Morris Foundation.
