AERS Supports Students Going to CERF 2017

Applications are Due September 5th

AERS has a longstanding tradition of supporting students to attend meetings, and we would like to continue this tradition. Funding is available from AERS to help defray the cost of your travel to the CERF 2017 Conference in Providence, RI, which will be held on November 5-9, 2017.

Award amounts will be based on need and the number of applications received. To qualify for an award a student must meet the following requirements:

1) Member in good standing (all dues paid) of AERS and CERF.

2) If you have applied to present a paper at the conference, you must submit a copy of the presentation abstract.

3) Include a letter of application identifying estimated meeting costs and any other support (e.g., student volunteer at CERF, institutional support), a C.V. and a letter of support from your advisor.

All application materials must be received by: September 5, 2017

You will be notified of your application status no later than: September 18, 2017

The application for funding is very straightforward and we encourage AERS students to take advantage of this opportunity. Please note that students who plan to present at CERF 2017 will be given first consideration for funding, but presentation at CERF is not a requirement to apply for travel funds. In addition, those who have not received AERS travel funds in the past will be given priority consideration. We urge all students to visit the meeting site for CERF 2017 to learn about other ways students can defray the meeting costs. Students are encouraged to apply simultaneously for funding from both AERS and CERF.

Application materials should be submitted to Dr. David Yozzo, Student Endowment co-Chair, at Dr. Yozzo can also be contacted if there are any questions.
