Student Travel Awards: ASL or ASL-Sponsored Meetings
The ASL will make available modest travel awards to graduate students in logic so that they may attend ASL or ASL-sponsored meetings (other than the 2017 North American Annual Meeting and the 2017 European Summer Meeting; the announcement for travel award applications for these meetings will be made later in 2016). Student members of the ASL also may apply for travel grants to other ASL or ASL-sponsored 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.
For ASL student member travel grants to ASL or ASL-sponsored meetings (other than the 2017 North American Annual Meeting and the 2017 European Summer Meeting), applications and recommendations should be received at least three months prior to the meeting at the ASL Business Office: ASL, Box 742, Vassar College, 124 Raymond Avenue, Poughkeepsie, New York 12604, USA; Fax: 1-845-437-7830; email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Decisions will be communicated at least two months prior to the meeting.
