Student Travel Awards: The 2016 ASL North American Annual Meeting, 2016 ASL European Summer Meeting, and other ASL or ASL-Sponsored Meetings.
The ASL will make available modest travel awards to graduate students in logic and (for the European Summer Meeting only) to recent Ph.D.’s so that they may attend the 2016 ASL North American Annual Meeting in Storrs, Connecticut or the 2016 ASL European Summer Meeting in Leeds, England; see below for information about these meetings. Student members of the ASL also may apply for travel grants to other ASL or ASL-sponsored meetings. See below for information about these meetings. To be considered for a travel award, please (1) send a letter of application, and (2) ask your thesis supervisor to send a brief recommendation letter. The application letter should be brief (preferably one page) and should include: (1) your name; (2) your home institution; (3) your thesis supervisor's name; (4) a one-paragraph description of your studies and work in logic, and a paragraph indicating why it is important to attend the meeting; (5) your estimate of the travel expenses you will incur; (6) (for citizens or residents of the USA) citizenship or visa status; and (7) (voluntary) indication of your gender and minority status. Women and members of minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply. In addition to funds provided by the ASL, the program of travel grants is supported by a grant from the US National Science Foundation; NSF funds for meetings outside of North America may be awarded only to students at USA universities and to citizens and permanent residents of the USA. Air travel paid for using NSF funds must be in accordance with the Fly America Act. Application by email is encouraged; put "ASL travel application'' in the subject line of your message.
