Award Application

The application process for the 2020 Early Career Scholar Travel Awards is NOW CLOSED. Please check back here in early 2021 for details about applying for a 2021 Travel Award.

Award Disbursement:
Awards will be given as reimbursements to recipients at the end of the annual conference. Recipients should be prepared to submit receipts for travel costs incurred (e.g., airline tickets, hotel accommodations). Recipients will receive the amount equivalent to their travel costs, up to $500 USD (if travel costs are less than $500 USD, the recipient will receive an amount equal to his/her travel expenses). Unfortunately, we are not able to cover all travel expenses and strongly encourage applicants to search for additional sources of funding.
