Purpose

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

Eligibility

Applicants should be chairs of interest groups, standing committees, or individual SMT members organizing some session or event for the SMT Annual Meeting.

Award

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, write to the SMT Treasurer with a description of the request, a budget, and a short justification.

The deadline for such conference subventions is May 15 of each year. If its funds have not been expended during the May 15th 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.
