Each year the Annual Meeting Grants Subcommittee considers special funding requests from standing committees and interest groups for activities held at the SMT Annual Meeting.


Applicants should be chairs of interest groups or standing committees. 


The budget for such requests is typically small. The award is intended to offset the costs associated with guest speakers, performers, technology matters, and other such expenses.

Application Process

To apply for a special conference subvention, the Chair of the standing committee or interest group should write to the SMT Treasurer with a description of the request, a budget, and a short justification.

The deadline for such conference subventions is April 10 of each year. If its funds have not been expended during the April 10 round, the Annual Meeting Grants Subcommittee will invite further applications. If applicable, the deadline for the second round of subventions will be September 8.

Please contact the SMT Treasurer with any questions regarding these subventions.
