Student Travel Grants
Students may apply for support to help cover documented travel expenses to SPW14 workshops. A student from a U.S. university may receive up to $1000, while a student from an international institution may receive up to $1500.
We encourage applications from students from a wide variety of institutions, diverse backgrounds, and first time attendees.
Undergraduate and graduate students will be considered. An application for a travel award will consist of the following:
- Name of the workshop that the applicant intends to attend,
- Applicant's resume (or curriculum vitae),
- Summary of applicant's research interests,
- Statement of why the applicant will benefit from participating in the workshop,
- Recommendation letter that includes justification of financial need,
- (Optional) Other information that the grant review committee should consider.
Applications are due by April 1, and recipients will be notified in time to be eligible for early registration. Send applications and recommendation
letter (email suffices) to: email@example.com
The following are two examples of how SPW travel grants will work for documented expenses up to $1000:
Example 1: Student A in the U.S. submits an application and is approved for a travel grant. She arrives at the SPW event with receipts
totaling $837.50. The SPW treasurer provides Student A with a check for $837.50.
Example 2: Student B in the U.S. submits an application and is approved for a travel grant. He arrives at the SPW event with
receipts totaling $1243.10. The SPW treasurer provides Student B with a check for $1000.
