UREAG Call for Travel Grant Applications 2017

We would like to invite you to submit applications for the UREAG Travel Grant Award. All UREAG members whose proposals were accepted for CIES 2017 are eligible to apply for the grant. See guidelines below:

The UREAG Travel Grant is designed to recognize efforts of students and scholars from under-represented racial, ethnic, and ability groups who need support for travel to present the results of their scholarly research at the annual meeting of CIES. This travel grant is generously funded by CIES in support of the UREAG Standing Committee, with grants ranging from $250-$400 USD each.

UREAG Travel Grants are awarded based on the quality of the application, institutional representation, and attention to diversity. Special consideration is given to applicants traveling from outside North America.

Please note that successful applicants will receive their funds on-site at CIES 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia. During the conference, UREAG Travel Grant recipients will be required to attend the UREAG business meeting; exceptions will be granted only in the case that your own presentation is scheduled for the same time slot. UREAG Travel Grant recipients will also be required to submit a one-paragraph follow-up report on their participation in CIES 2017 by April 17, 2017. If you previously received a UREAG travel grant but did not submit your report, as required by the grant, then you are not eligible for another travel grant. 

Only CIES members in good standing are eligible (To join CIES or renew your membership, please click here.) The CIES-member applicant must also be a member of UREAG. Membership in UREAG is free. If you are not already a UREAG member, please download the 2017 UREAG Travel Grant Application, complete the attached membership form on the last page, and follow the instructions to submit the form.

UREAG Travel Grant applications must be submitted by December 20, 2016. Notification of award recipients will take place no later than February 3, 2017.
