The deadline for all SMT 2019 travel grants is September 10, 2019.

 

The SMT provides funding to certain eligible groups to travel to the annual meeting, including underrepresented ethnic minority groups, international scholars, independent/unsupported/undersupported scholars, those who need family care, and those whose attendance at the Annual Meeting incurs extra disability-related expenses.

Through financial resources provided by donors and members, the SMT is able to make available a number of awards and grants. Individuals may apply for more than one kind of travel grant for which they qualify, but may only be awarded a maximum amount of overall funding equal to the largest grant for which they have applied.
