Thirteen travel grants of US$1,500 each have been awarded to support the participation of IAMCR members at our upcoming conference in Montreal.
The nine women and four men are from eleven different countries and will present papers to eleven of IAMCR's 31 sections and working groups.
Every year IAMCR awards a number of travel grants to early-stage scholars, who are members in good standing of the association, reside in low and middle income countries and have a paper accepted for presentation at the conference. The grants provide a valuable opportunity to scholars who might otherwise be unable to attand IAMCR while contributing to the diversity of our conferences. Fifteen percent of annual membership revenue goes towards the grants as do the voluntary donations of many members and supporters.
For more information on the travel grants, including testimonies of past grant recipients, visit the travel grant section of the website. Please consider making a donation to the travel grant fund. It's a great way to encourage emerging scholars and new perspectives within IAMCR.
