2018 Activist Travel Fund
Please donate to support activists from across the world's participation in NWSA's conference in Atlanta.

APPLY for 2018 Activist Travel Fund 
We have a limited Activist Travel Fund supported by individual donors and available to activists who wish to participate in NWSA's annual conference in Atlanta and have no others means to fund that participation. These funds are selective and restricted. They are made possible by individual donors in an effort to bridge feminist scholarly and activist communities. Applicants should submit their request in the form of a letter describing their situation and activist work to nwsaoffice@nwsa.org. The application should also include a letter (which can be submitted via email) from an NWSA member in support of the request. Funds will be allocated on a rolling basis.
Our criteria for selection are as follows (candidates may meet some or all):
  • Activist with no academic affiliation
  • Activist involved in ongoing or historically significant activist work
  • Expressed financial need (honor system)
  • Strong recommendation of at least one NWSA member relating how the applicant's presence would add to the conference
  • Applicant is scheduled to participate in conference programming
  • Applicant would add diversity to the conference, whether it be as a WOC, LGBTQIA person, young person under 35, transnational attendee
