2021 Travel Awards

Travel Awards for individuals from countries with emerging or developing economies

Four travel awards are available for individuals who attend and present at the 2021 SSSR conference. Each award is $1000. We are proceeding with the awards this year even though the conference is virtual. Winners of the 2021 award will be allowed to use the money to travel to a future conference. We expect that two awards will be given to researchers who have a PhD and two awards to those who do not. Applicant must be both a citizen and a resident of a country listed in this Excel file (derived from the World Bank classification system) as low or middle income. Applicant must have a paper accepted at the 2021 SSSR conference and must present at the conference. Please submit the following materials to Rebecca Treiman (rtreiman@wustl.edu) by May 15, 2021
