ASPIRE 2021 Sponsorship

Reservations for sponsorship, digital advertisement, and Hot Topic presentations are now being accepted for the 2021 ASPIRE, Inc. regional conference, and we invite you to reserve your space now! The 2021 annual conference for ASPIRE will take place virtually October 11-13, 2021.

ASPIRE, Inc. is a regional, non-profit organization serving TRIO professionals from North and South Dakota, Montana, Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming.  TRIO Programs are publicly funded through the US Department of Education with the singular mission to assist individuals to prepare for, enter into, and succeed in higher education. These individuals are from low-income households, who will be the first generation in their family to attend college, or individuals who experience disability.  TRIO professionals in the ASPIRE region work in educational settings at the middle school, high school, and collegiate levels, and among the community.

We anticipate 200+ professionals who represent 140 TRIO projects from across our six-state region.  We are offering multiple great opportunities for you to get your business’ name and presence in front of this region-wide audience.

No Federal program dollars are used in hosting the ASPIRE conference, which makes partnerships such as yours vital to the success of the conference and the continuation of the ASPIRE mission.  Thank you for your support of our programs and the students we serve!
