Annual Meeting Travel Fund - International Awards
Share |

Purpose: To provide four annual awards of travel support to SEM Annual Meeting presenters who live permanently in countries other than the U.S. and Canada. These awards are intended to increase and facilitate international participation in the meeting. The Travel Fund Award Committee selects awardees on the basis of the quality of their presentation abstracts. The final pool of four awardees is also intended to represent presenters from diverse geographic regions.

Eligibility: Individuals who: 1) live permanently in countries other than the U.S. and Canada, 2) are not currently residing or studying in the U.S. or Canada, 3) have received an acceptance of their presentation abstract for the Annual Meeting, 4) have registered for the Annual Meeting and hold a current SEM membership; 5) do not have access to other institutional funding that would cover the costs of travel to the Annual Meeting.

Previous winners must wait three years before reapplying (e.g., 2014 winners may reapply in 2017).

Prize: Four awards of $1,000/each.

Regularity: Annually

Administration: The Annual Meeting Program Committee serves as the Travel Fund Award Committee and reviews all accepted presenters who have requested consideration for a Travel Fund Award. Applicants must have registered for the Annual Meeting and purchased an SEM membership by July 1. The committee contacts awardees in August and confirms their commitment to attend the Annual Meeting. Awardees receive checks in U.S. dollars at the Annual Meeting.

Application Process: After receiving an acceptance of an Annual Meeting presentation abstract, register for the meeting as soon as online registration opens in June. Check the designated boxes on the online registration form to request consideration for a Travel Award. Annual Meeting registration is available at "Conferences” on the SEM website.

Note: Individuals may not apply during the same year for both an International Award and an Underemployed Award from the Annual Meeting Travel Fund.

Application Deadline:   July 1
