This year, we will provide up to $350 for applicants within Canada and $500 for international applicants. You are strongly encouraged to apply for travel support from other sources as our grants seldom suffice to cover the entire cost. Please be sure to indicate whether you have done so and/or you have some funds of your own to attend. Doing so will not decrease, and could even increase, your chances of getting funded.
Given our limited funds, we will give priority to applications from low-income individuals, students and contract faculty (particularly those without access to other funds from their universities). We regret that we will not be able to provide any travel or accommodation assistance to local participants (living within 200 km of the Congress site).
Only Society members are eligible for our travel grant awards. You are required to update, or initiate, your membership (which can be done at Congress) in order to qualify to have an award dispensed to you at Congress.
The deadline is 8 March 2019. We will make every effort to inform applicants of decisions about funding by 31 March 2019.
Please note: we normally pay out travel funding at Congress by cheque; you will need to submit original receipts (or other documents) at Congress in order to receive the funding.
