AAI is supporting travel grants to undergraduate faculty to assist them in attending the AAI annual meeting. The grant will also support travel costs for an undergraduate student of the recipient’s selection.
To be eligible, applicants must be a Regular AAI member paid through the end of 2012. Applicants must be faculty whose primary teaching responsibility is undergraduate teaching, with at least 6 hours of formal classroom or laboratory teaching per week of classes comprised of not less than 50 percent undergraduates. Applicants should also have an active research program. Applicants must fully disclose all sources of current funding. Total funding is not to exceed $300,000 per year with limited funds available for travel. While first consideration will be given to those who have submitted abstracts to the meeting, submission of an abstract is not required. Applications will be considered in the order of submission.
These grants will provide up to two travel awards; one for an undergraduate faculty member, and one for an undergraduate student of the recipient’s selection. Recipients will be reimbursed for expenses associated with attending the meeting (registration, travel and housing). A grant of up to $1,250 is awarded to the undergraduate faculty member, and a grant of up to $1,000 is awarded to the selected undergraduate student (registration for an undergraduate student is complimentary).
