Travel Grant Competition

The Travel Grant is designed to assist those in need with travel expenses to the Annual Meeting. Maximum award is $600 with $6,000 being the total amount that will be awarded each year by the Association (multiple grants may be awarded in a single year). Grants can be applied towards any cost associated with attending and presenting at the meeting (the meeting registration fee will be waived for awardees).  The travel grants are awarded on a competitive basis for those who would otherwise be financially unable to attend the annual meeting and preference may be given to students and rural residents although anyone who can demonstrate need is welcome to apply.

Applicants must be a current member of the Association or be sponsored by a current member of the Association. If sponsored by a current member the applicant must supply a short letter of support from their sponsor. Sponsors may submit applications on behave of applicants. The applicant must be an author or collaborator on a paper or poster being presented, or a participant in a group format symposium. Applications for travel grants are due by December 15th to allow for review and notification to the winners with enough time to plan for travel prior to the conference in early spring.
