Independent/Unsupported/Undersupported Scholar Grants

Adjunct instructors, independent scholars who do not hold academic positions, and all those for whom conference attendance would pose financial difficulties and who have no access to other funding are invited to apply for travel grants to help defray the costs associated with attending the SMT Annual Meeting. Students are not eligible to apply for this grant. Typically up to 5 grants are made, with a maximum award of $400. Preference is given to those who are presenting a paper and have not been awarded this grant previously.

To apply for this travel grant, please fill out the online Travel Grant application form. You must log in first in order to fill out this form. If you are not yet a SMT member, or if you are having trouble with the online form, you may instead download this Travel Grant form then either fill it out or print it out and scan it, and then email the completed form to SMT Executive Director Victoria Long. The attachments requested should be in a standard file format, such as a Microsoft Word .doc file or a .pdf.

Complete application materials must be received by August 1, 2017, 5pm EST. For comments and inquiries, please email the Executive Director.

These grants are made possible in part by donations from the SMT-40 campaign.
