CMES Spring/Summer 2018 Conference Travel Awards

Dear MES Graduate Students, 

This is the call for Spring/Summer graduate student conference travel awards (this is NOT the call for summer language study/research -- that will be sent out in March). 

Priority for conference travel awards will be given to students presenting papers and to ABD students who are currently on the job market. 

Priority is given to students attending national or international conferences. 

The next call for conference travel awards will be in late September 2018 for Fall 2018/Winter 2019 conferences. 

NOTE: If you *ARE* presenting a paper, you must apply for travel funding first from the Academic Senate. Only graduate students who have exhausted the conference travel funding offered by the Academic Senate are eligible to receive funding from CMES. (Students who are not presenting a paper are ineligible for Academic Senate funding and should therefore apply only to CMES) 

Please send your application by email to Adam Sabra: 


The deadline for applications is midnight, Sunday, Feb. 23, 2018

Please use the attached application form

The funding applications will be judged by a faculty committee. 

Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions. 

Thank you,

Adam Sabra
