Travel Grants

Each year, the SAA awards conference travel grants for contingent faculty and independent scholars, and for graduate students at the dissertation stage. Awardees receive $400 in travel support and remission of the conference registration fee. One may not receive travel grants more than twice in each category.

Click the button on the left to apply for 2020 SAA Travel Grants. Applicants must be SAA members in good standing; must participate in the meeting program (by speaking in a panel, leading a seminar or workshop, or enrolling in a seminar or workshop), and must attend the full conference. The deadline is 1 November 2019.

Travel Grants for Contingents and Independents

Candidates include contingent academics—including adjunct and limited-term faculty, lecturers, instructors, and independent research scholars—who do not have access to institutional travel funding. Applicants for the Graduate-Student Travel Grants are not eligible to apply for the Contingent Faculty Travel Grants.

Each application is comprised of two parts:

  • A brief curriculum vitae that documents employment history.
  • A letter, not to exceed 400 words, that states the conference role the applicant will undertake, describes how participation will advance the applicant’s research, and confirms that the applicant does not have access to institutional support for conference travel. You may also explain your circumstances if your status requires it.

Graduate-Student Travel Grants

Applicants must provide proof for their ABD status. The SAA will contact your dissertation advisor to verify your status and to state your department’s funding policy and practice. 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.

Deadline: 1 November 2019.
