Annual Meeting Travel Grants

Every November, SSA student and early-career members are invited to apply for an Annual Meeting Travel Grant to support their participation in the Annual Meeting. Over the past ten years, SSA has funded Annual Meeting travel for more than 150 members.

Lucia Gonzalez, Student Member

Lucia Gonzalez, University of Texas El Paso, has a message to her peers and fellow members: “Do not miss the chance to apply and experience one of the most fulfilling and rewarding meetings out there. To [all] who have donated in order to keep granting travel funds, thank you so much for all that you do for the community!”

Steve Carr, Student Member

Steve Carr, University of Rochester, received a Student Travel Grant to attend SSA 2023. “The Annual Meeting Travel Grant represents a significant opportunity for me” explains Carr. He adds “It is not only financial support that enabled my participation in this year’s SSA meeting, but it also represents the Society’s commitment to the sharing of scientific knowledge without economic boundaries.”

Voon Hui Lai, Early-career Member

Voon Hui Lai, Australian National University, appreciated the connections she made at the 2023 Annual Meeting with the aid of a travel grant. “Meeting new members and reconnecting with old colleagues, and having in-depth conversations [about topics ranging] from the future of DAS to navigating research life as an early-career member has been very meaningful,” she says.
