Grants and Awards
Each year, the SAA awards conference travel grants for contingent faculty and independent scholars, retirees, and graduate students at the dissertation stage.
In 2021, the SAA expanded its grants to allow other groups to apply for grants based on post-pandemic financial hardship, the reduction of departmental funding, or boycotts that prevent applications for university funding.
Awardees receive travel support of $500 and remission of the conference registration fee.
Applicants must be SAA members in good standing; must participate in the meeting program (by speaking in a panel, leading a seminar or workshop, or enrolling in a seminar or workshop); and if applying for the in-person full grant, attend the full conference.
Applicants should submit the following:
- A brief curriculum vitae (no more than two pages).
- A letter, not to exceed 400 words, describing the conference role the applicant will undertake and the circumstances that require grant support.
