The AAEA Trust seeks applications for Early Career Professional and Graduate Student Travel Grants. These grants defray housing and transportation costs associated with attending the 2024 AAEA Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA from July 28 – 30. The amount of the travel grant awarded will depend on the number of applications received. AAEA Trust Travel Grants (if awarded) are generally not large enough to offset all travel and lodging costs, and are meant to supplement institutional support.
Qualifying applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements in order to be considered for a travel grant:
Applications must be submitted through the online application form. You will be asked to submit the following:
Applications should be submitted by the individual seeking support; however, only two applications from each employing institution will be considered. In the event that more than two applications are submitted from a specific department or division, it will be up to the department head to decide which will be considered, so it may be helpful to coordinate at that level. If an applicant is self-employed or not-yet-employed they may seek a letter of support from a colleague or mentor from their degree-awarding institution. Any letter of support for an Early Career Professional not employed or a student at a degree-awarding institution will not count against the maximum of two nominations from any department or other entity formally nominating other applicants.
Reflecting the Trust’s goal of broadening participation in the Annual Meeting, preference may be given to individuals working under institutional circumstances not normally conducive to AAEA meeting attendance.
The deadline for submission is May 24, 2024. To apply, please visit https://aaea.execinc.com/edibo/TravelGrants2024App
