Travel Grant
 
Dear ISEP Members,
 
We are pleased to announce that ISEP will use a portion of the Mace Travel Fund to issue a small number of "ISEP Mace Travel Awards.” These will help support graduate student participation at ICPA2019 in Groningen. The student award will consist of a waiver of the conference registration fee for the student. The student’s registration fee will be paid for by the Mace Travel Fund. 
 
To qualify for the award; (1) the student must be nominated by a faculty adviser, (2) both the student and the nominating faculty advisor must be paid ISEP members, and (3) the student must be the first author on an accepted oral paper presentation or poster presentation.
 
To apply for this award the faculty member must submit a brief recommendation letter along with the student's CV. The nominating faculty member should briefly explain the value of having the student at the meeting and his or her academic merit. Applications will be reviewed based on the following criteria:
  • The extent to which the research or conference travel is currently unfunded or unsupported by the applicant’s advisor, department, home university, or other sources.
  • The type of presentation (oral presentation or poster presentation).
  • Academic merit assessed in terms of its scholarly contributions.
  • Diversity of background. 

Nominations should be sent to Chris Pagano via email at cpagano@clemson.edu, by April 24.
