Student Travel Fund

You can make a difference!

Help make it more affordable for students to attend the annual meeting by contributing to the Student Travel Fund via your annual meeting registration form. Your donation can make it possible for students to attend the 2006 GSA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. 100% of the contributions received will go to help fund student travel. To get the fund started off on the right foot, GSA and the GSA Foundation are happy to contribute US$1,000 each. Donations can be made on your registration form, or by calling the GSA Foundation, +1-303-357-1054. Students: How to apply.
