Travel assistance to help defray the costs of attending the annual meetings is available for graduate students. Applicants are asked to include an abstract of their paper and to provide their contact information, name of their academic advisor, academic program status (MA, ABD, etc.), if they have attended the SSSR meetings before, their SSSR program status (presenting, co author but not presenting, etc.), and any additional sources of funding such as departmental travel assistance or some similar funding.

Applicants should fill out all the required information and submit electronically by April 30, 2021. Awardees will be notified by email by May 31, 2021—the same day as notification of paper or session acceptanceso they can plan accordingly. While it will be necessary for students to go online and pre-register using a special code provided by the Executive Office, the registration fee is included as part of the grant. Checks will be distributed in person at the SSSR meeting.
