Apply

 

The deadline for applications is 17 June 2022. GSA International management board members intend to let applicants know about their status (successful or not) by 11 July 2022.

With the current COVID-19 situation improving and social distancing regulations easing, the GSA Connects 2022 meeting will be held in Denver, Colorado, USA. It is being planned as an in-person meeting with online options. To fly to the US, please check with your country’s guidelines as well as US regulations regarding requirements related to COVID-19 such as proof of a negative COVID test.

Information on the GSA International Travel Grants:

The GSA International Travel Grants are awarded annually. Applicants do not need to be members of the GSA or GSA International to apply (although it is preferred). Successful applicants must reside outside of North America, and they must present at the GSA meeting to be eligible to receive a check from GSA during the meeting. Given the restructuring of the meeting registration fees, GSA International will match the new fees for the successful applicants.

The GSA International Travel Grants are limited, both in number of awards and in allocations. It is highly recommended that you seek local funding to offset the cost of attending the GSA Connects annual meeting. Please bear in mind that the GSA seeks student volunteers to aid in registration and other meeting related activities, and selected students will receive registration waivers. The call for student volunteers will come from within the meeting department.
