2020 SSA Global Travel Grant - Application
DEADLINE: 31 July 2020, 5 p.m. Pacific
SSA's Global Travel Grant offers financial assistance to students attending a workshop, a small domestic scientific meeting or an international scientific meeting. Attendance at the meeting must be directly connected to the study of earthquake science or seismology or their application. Travel must occur between 1 November 2020 and 30 April 2021.
–Applicant must be an SSA Student member in good standing for at least six months prior to open application period or Early-Career member in good standing for at least one year prior to open application period.
–Attendance at the meeting must be directly connected to the study or application of earthquake science or seismology.
–Updates for July 2020: Due to COVID-19, many conferences are now virtual. SSA will accept applications for registration costs associated with virtual conferences with a minimum financial request of $150. If you apply for an in-person meeting that is eventually converted to a virtual format, funding may be applied to the virtual event, subject to need and the revised registration costs. Grants for an in-person meeting that is postponed may be applied to the rescheduled meeting.
–Applicants may apply to participate in relevant scientific conferences or workshops anywhere in the world. Please note: Any in-person conference that takes place in North America must have fewer than 1,000 participants. For virtual events: if the last in-person meeting took place in North America, it must have had fewer than 1,000 participants in order to qualify for this grant. [Examples of ineligible virtual or in-person meetings in North America: Annual Meetings of SSA, AGU, GSA and SEG.]
Note: This travel grant does not provide funds to attend SSA conferences. A separate SSA program provides travel grants to attend the SSA Annual Meeting.
