Travel Grants and Family Care Grants

SMT offers a limited number of grants (typically up to 4, with a maximum award of $400) to help defray family care costs for those whose attendance at the Annual Meeting incurs extra family care expenses. These grants are made possible in part by donations from the SMT-40 campaign. Please note that SMT itself does not provide for, arrange for, or recommend any specific family care services.

  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. Family Care Grant: Available to those SMT members whose attendance at the Annual Meeting incurs extra family care expenses. This grant is available only to current SMT members.

The deadline for receipt of applications for these grants is August 1, 2018, 5pm EST.
