travel awards

for Non-north american members

For many SSEA conferences, we have offered travel awards so that more people based outside the United States could attend our conferences. We will provide a similar opportunity for the 8th Conference in Washington DC in November, 2017.


The deadline for applying for SSEA travel awards is February 15, 2017.


Award decisions will be made by March 15, 2017.

travel award amount

We will provide a limited number of travel awards to non-North American SSEA members. Preference will be given to individuals who have not previously received an SSEA travel award and to those who have submitted (or plan to submit) an abstract for presentation at SSEA. Travel awards will range from $250 to $2,000, depending on need and available funds.  Membership in SSEA is required to apply for a travel award and all non-North American members  from all categories (i.e. students, emerging scholars, professionals) are encouraged to apply. SSEA provides discounted membership fees for many developing countries.

how to apply

The deadline for travel applications has now passed, and award decisions have been made. If you'd like to apply for a travel award for our conference in 2019, please email for more information.
