4S administers a travel fund to support graduate student participation in its annual meetings. In addition to the base funding, a special fund was created from proceeds from the 2010 meeting. This Tokyo Fund supports Asian, African, and Latin American graduate students who wish to present a paper at 4S meetings.
Applications for 2016 will be invited following the issuance of acceptance notices for the program (April 17th). The anticipated deadline for applications is May 1st.
Awards are available for travel expenses only, not for food or lodging. The amount of each award will be determined once all applications have been received. In previous years, awards were in the range of $150-400, depending upon the distance to be traveled. However, the limited funds available do not allow us to award travel grants to all applicants.
