Travel Grant, AAAS Annual Meeting

Posted: 1/14/2019 (Funding)

Interested in attending the Annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Washington DC this February? Check out the following call for applications for a travel grant, due January 20, 2018.

The AAAS Social, Economic and Political Sciences Section  budget contains money that will allow help support several grad or post grad students to attend the February AAAS annual meeting from Wednesday February 13 through Sunday February 19.

Note that airfare must be purchased 14 days in advance at cheapest rates and student registration rates increase by $10 on January 22.  Also depending on the number of applicants for support it is possible if not likely that there will be a cap on the amount of support that any one student or post doc can receive.  (I am thinking of $600) Those supported should be studying for a degree or working as a post doc in one of the social science disciplines included under the Sections umbrella (broadly interpreted to include social sciences closely related to our named sciences if they are not represented by another AAAS section.). They should  also commit to attend the Section Business Meeting from 10 until noon on February 15.

Any person interested in applying for Section K support should send a support request to Professor Richard Lempert (rlempert@umich.edu) by January 20, 2018.  In their letter they should indicate the discipline in which they are studying for a graduate degree or working as a post doc; provide a budget indicating the minimum Section support they think they will need to attend the annual meeting;  and list other sources of support that they have available to attend the meeting.
