Provides students and early career members with travel grants to attend the SSA Annual Meeting, arguably our most important event.
The Annual Meeting is our time to gather together, share information, provide career support and answer one another’s research questions. By providing childcare support and access to travel, this fund ensures that as many members as possible have the opportunity to network, present research and receive valuable feedback from the international seismological community.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, a record 21 travel grant recipients were present at our 2019 meeting in Seattle, our most recent in-person gathering. In 2022 the fund will allow us to bring a new group to participate in our in-person gathering.
Our time together is incredibly valuable—for networking, for collaborating and for learning. By supporting this fund, you connect students and early career seismologists to the people and programs that advance earthquake science.
A gift of connection with the scientific community:
“[The Annual Meeting Travel Grant Fund] can provide young students like myself the opportunity to attend the SSA conference, be welcomed into the seismological community, and be inspired by fellow researchers.”
