Travel Grants and Childcare Grants

SMT offers various types of grant opportunities to help defray the costs for attending at our Annual Meetings. These grants are made possible in part by donations from the SMT-40 campaign.

  1. Minority Travel Grant: Available to individuals belonging to an underrepresented ethnic minority group and who are citizens of, or currently residing in, the US or Canada.
  2. International Travel Grant: Available to non-US and non-Canadian citizens who reside outside of the United States and Canada.
  3. Independent/Unsupported/Undersupported Scholar Grant: Available to those who do not have academic positions, or who study or teach at institutions that do not support scholarly conference attendance.
  4. Childcare Grant: Available to those SMT members whose attendance at the Annual Meeting incurs extra childcare expenses. This grant is available only to current SMT members.

The deadline for receipt of applications for these grants is August 1, 2017, 5pm EST.
