GSA International Section Travel Grants

Application deadline: 1 July

GSA's International Section is offering travel grants to help international scientists and students participate in the annual meeting by helping to offset a portion of the combined cost of travel, housing, and registration. Funds for these travel grants are limited so grants cannot cover all expenses.

Section officers intend to let applicants know about their status (successful or not) by 1 August 2012, which allows a 90-day window for processing travel visa documents.

Learn more about the GSA International Section. If you have questions, please contact Alan Smith, Chair, GSA International Section ; or Nazrul Khandaker, Secretary, GSA International Section .
