UREAG Travel Grants
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 Committee, with grants ranging from $250-$400 USD each. All members of the UREAG Committee are invited to submit applications; however, only UREAG members whose proposals are accepted for the upcoming Annual Meeting are eligible to receive award.
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 of North America.
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 UREAG Travel Grant Application, complete the attached membership form on the last page, and follow the instructions to submit the form.
Please note that successful applicants will receive their funds on-site at the upcoming Annual Meeting of CIES. 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 the Annual Meeting within one month following the event. 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.
UREAG Travel Grant applications must be submitted by December 20, 2017. Click here to download the application form.
