Travel Grants and Registration Scholarships
NWSA offers a limited number of registration scholarships and travel grants to accepted presenters. Students, scholars, and activists with a demonstrated need for financial assistance are encouraged to apply. Particular consideration will be given to assisting presenters who have not previously received NWSA travel grants. The registration scholarships and grants are also intended to encourage the participation of individuals from under-represented constituencies in the NWSA. Due to limited funds, this opportunity is open to applicants based in North America only.
Applicants must be NWSA individual members in order for their applications to be considered.
The 2017 application will be available after proposal notifications are sent in April.
NWSA 2016 Travel Grants
In 2016, NWSA received 153 complete applications. NWSA currently provides a total of $20,000 in travel fund support and 100 complimentary conference registrations. The committee reviewed the applications and made the following allocations;
35 applicants received complimentary conference registration.
55 applicants received complimentary conference registration and $250 in travel funds.
13 applicants received complimentary conference registration and $500 in travel funds.
Each year applications for funding far exceed the number of grants the Association can give. We want to close that gap, and you can make a difference. Help us raise funds to support need-based travel grants so that all of our members can attend the conference, present their work, and mobilize for the future.
