Graduate Student Travel Awards

The Graduate Student Caucus provides a number of travel awards to graduate students. The awards are open to any graduate student who has been accepted to present or chair a session at the 51st Annual Convention in Boston.

Evaluation is based on the quality of the student’s abstract and the relevance of their topic in their respective fields. 

Applicants must submit, in the body of an email to, the following. Applications not following these guidelines will not be reviewed:

  • the accepted abstract and its title 
  • a statement of no more than 250 words describing the presentation's relevance to their field
  • If the presentation is part of a larger project, the statement must explain the larger project’s intervention into the field.

Applications not following the guidelines will not be considered.

The deadline for applications has passed. Students can expect to hear from the Graduate Caucus by early December. Awards range from $110 to $400 depending on the number and strength of applications.
