Annual Meeting Travel Grants

Modest travel grants are available to international SSA members, student SSA members and persons traveling from European Seismological Commission member-states who wish to attend the SSA Annual Meeting. All grant recipients must submit an abstract as first author and must present their work in either an oral or poster session at the meeting.

  • The International Travel Grant is available to SSA members who must travel from outside the US to attend the SSA meeting.
  • The Student Travel Grant is available to SSA student members who must travel more than 500 km (311 miles) to attend the meeting.
  • The ESC/SSA Travel Grant is available to anyone traveling from a member-state of the European Seismological Commission. This grant is provided under a cooperative agreement between SSA and ESC. Click here to see the list of ESC member-states.

Applications are accepted each year, starting 1 November 2017 and due by 30 November 2017. Travel grants cover the cost of meeting registration and provide a modest cash award (for the 2017 meeting, U.S. based students received a cash award of $800 and international-based students received $1500 cash, in addition to the waived registration fee). Only one application per institution may be awarded.

In order for their applications to be considered, all STUDENTS applying for any of these grants must have a faculty advisor submit a 1-2 paragraph letter of support.
