The call for Student Small Travel Grants for the 2020 Joint WDA/EWDA Conference is postponed to new dates that will be soon posted in this section.
The Student Activities Committee of the WDA would like to announce the Student Travel Grants Program. The purpose of this fund is to provide small travel scholarships ($500 - $1000) to individual WDA student members who plan to attend the annual WDA conference (this year at the same time as the EWDA conference), especially to those who may not be eligible to apply for the competitive WDA student awards. Students who reside near the conference location are NOT eligible to apply for this travel grant, as funds are intended to offset travel and lodging fees. The applicant review committee will award funds based on demonstrated interest and involvement in WDA as well as financial need. Funds will be disbursed to award recipients at the annual conference upon confirmation of student conference registration. Students attending the conference on a travel scholarship will be asked to share their experience by giving a presentation at their home university (WDA Student Chapter or similar student group) during the fall semester following the conference and to write a short text for the student corner of the WDA newsletter. Please note that students who have previously received a travel award or are awarded a WDA Student Award this year are not eligible for this year’s travel award. Deadline for submission of the application form and a letter of support is April 15, 2020.
Applications should be sent to Marianthi Ioannidis at firstname.lastname@example.org. All student applicants will receive a notice of successful receipt of their application. Notification of awards will be made by May 15, 2020.
We wish you good luck !
The Student Activities Committee
