International Section

Travel Grants

Application Deadline:  1 July 2012

GSA's International Section is offering international travel grants to assist with the participation of international scientists and students in the GSA Annual Meeting, 4–7 November, 2012 held in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. Travel grant funds are limited and grants will not cover the full cost to attend the meeting but are intended to help offset the combined cost of registration, housing, and travel.

To apply for a 2012 Travel Grant:

You will be asked to provide a title and author list for the abstract you plan to submit. Applicants who intend to submit an abstract will be considered for travel grants, with the expectation that you will submit your abstract on time and be presenting your abstract at the meeting.


Section officers intend to let applicants know about their status (successful or not) by 1 August 2012, which allows a 90-day window for processing travel visa documents.
