Registration for the GRC Funding Competitiveness Conference is hosted on the main AASCU conference registration site. The registration link will land on the AASCU account page, where you will be prompted to create a minimal AASCU profile or retrieve an existing profile. This account is separate from the GRC institutional account used to access GRC resources. Your institution does not need to be a member of AASCU for you to create a profile on the AASCU site. There is no fee for creating an AASCU profile, which consists of a few short steps.
