Travel grant application


IVSA travel grants are only open to conference members, if you are already a paid up member please login to your account. If you are not yet a member please consider joining the IVSA.

In 2013 the IVSA began offering travel grants in the total amount of $10,000 USD total to conference participants in need of support. The funds are drawn from IVSA resources, and reflect our favorable cash flow due to royalties earned and other income.

The funds are awarded by a committee, which examines the applications in a blind review. This means that the committee does not know the names of the applicants, and assigns numerical ratings to several indexes.

These are not merit awards; the guiding principal is to fund those “coming the furthest with the greatest need.” We are pleased to consider advanced graduate students as well as the increasing number of teacher/scholars in non-tenure track, part time or contract employment in addition to full time, tenured faculty. The IVSA seeks applicants who are truly in need.

Recipients must be a first-author of a paper or other presentation to be considered.

The funds are only available for travel expenses (air, train or bus tickets) and visa expenses. We do not fund hotel expenses or conference registration fees.

Awarded funds are paid on location at the conference at a specified award meeting that is announced at the opening address. The funds are paid either by a check drawn on a US bank or in cash in US dollars. Depending on perceived needs, the amount awarded to individuals will be either $500 or $1,000. There are no exceptions in payment options, and if you receive an award we will communicate with you directly to determine whether you desire a check or cash.

The IVSA does not duplicate funding from other sources that may fund your travel to the IVSA site or nearby.
