For the third year, SMA is offering conference travel support to five student members who have had abstracts accepted to the AAA meeting in Washington, D.C. This will be in the form of a $500 travel award, to be given out as a check at this year’s SMA Business Meeting. Eligibility is restricted to student members of the SMA who are presenting papers or posters at the AAA meeting.
Applications should include the following:
- Proof of current SMA student membership
- Copy of the conference abstract
- Proof of acceptance
- Recommendation letter from an advisor
Awards will be evaluated based on significance, innovation and clarity of the submitted abstract, as well as the strength of the letter of support from the advisor, who should discuss the significance of the to-be-presented work.
Please compile all the supporting materials into ONE file and save it in pdf format. Email materials and any direct inquiries to the SMA 2014 Student Travel Fellowship committee at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 24, 2014. Awardees will be notified by October 2.
Our graduate students are our future! We hope to see you at the meetings!
