Diversity Travel Awards

As part of an initiative to increase diversity at this meeting, the conference organizers will provide travel awards in the form of free registration to students and postdoctoral scholars from underrepresented groups who are presenting their research at the meeting.  The number of awards will depend on the number of qualified applicants.

Current postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, and undergraduate students from underrepresented groups may apply for this award. Applicants must be presenting research at the conference. These awards are intended to increase diversity at the conferences, especially among racial and ethnic minorities; in addition, the organizing committee will consider proposals from first-generation college students, LGBT individuals, and physically disabled students.

Interested students should submit an application that includes the following:

A cover letter which provides contact information for the applicant and specifies the applicant’s eligibility for the award as a member of an underrepresented group.
A one-page (single-spaced) statement that describes the student’s professional goals, the presentation(s) he or she will be making at the conference, how attending the conference will benefit the student, and his or her financial need for the award.

Applications will be judged by members of the organizing committee.  Awards will be made on a competitive basis.

Applications must be submitted via email to ucsymposium@hsseas.ucla.edu<UrlBlockedError.aspx> by April 20, 2017. In the subject line of the email, please put "Diversity Travel Award".
