Graduate-Student Travel Grants
Each year, the SAA awards conference travel grants to dissertation-candidate members. Awardees receive $400 in travel support and remission of the conference registration fee of $90.
Applicants must be SAA members in good standing, must provide proof for their ABD status, must participate in the meeting program (by speaking in a panel or enrolling in a seminar or workshop), and must attend the full conference. Students may not receive an SAA travel award more than twice. Applicants for the Contingent Faculty Travel Grants are not eligible to apply for the Graduate-Student Travel Grants.
Each application is comprised of two parts:
- A brief curriculum vitae.
- A letter, not to exceed 400 words, that describes the student’s progress towards the degree, states the conference role the applicant will undertake, and describes how participation relates to the student’s dissertation in process. You may also explain your circumstances if your status requires it.
Applications are due by 1 November 2018. Awards are announced by 1 December.
The online portal for applications will open in October 2018 for our 2019 Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
