Graduate Student Travel Awards

We want to remove as many barriers as possible for participation in the Intentionally Digital, Intentionally Black conference. To this end, the AADHum Initiative is pleased to announce that a limited number of travel bursaries (of up to $250) and registration fee waivers have been made available to graduate students and PhD candidates to attend the conference.

Travel award winners will be selected from accepted conference submissions based on the scores received by a sub-committee of the Program Committee. Given the limited number of travel bursaries, we ask that you carefully consider your situation and the availability of your personal and professional funding sources before applying for this support.

To be considered for the AADHum Graduate Student Travel Award, please send an email to aadhum@umd.edu (subject line: “Graduate Student Travel Award application”) with the following information by 11:59pm EST on August 21, 2018.
