Travel Grants are for transportation to and from the conference hotel, including shuttle services, but do not cover lodging and food. You may also request registration reimbursement. Travel Grants are reimbursed after the conference. Reimbursement Forms will be emailed to recipients and will be available on the HSS and PSA meeting websites after the conclusion of the conferences.
Travel Grants are only available to those persons participating in the 2012 conferences (e.g. presenting a paper, chairing a session, commentator for a session, society governance). All other applications will be rejected. Only U.S. citizens and individuals at U.S. institutions are eligible for the travel grants.
Please be aware that we regularly receive more grant requests than we can fulfill. Submitting this application does not guarantee that we will be able to reimburse your travel costs.
