Overview:

The AAG will allocate approximately $30,000 to support participation of distinguished non-geographers in the Annual Meeting. The purpose of the Enrichment Fund is to enrich the AAG Annual Meeting by providing funds for individuals who likely would not participate in an AAG meeting without the awards. 

Specialty Group Enrichment Funds

The AAG has set aside 5 slots specifically for local, non-geographers who are invited by Specialty Group Chairs to attend the meeting, but not necessarily present at the meeting. These slots are available on a first come, first served basis. Any additional requests to the EF committee will be considered in the same light as other requests, and awards will be based on eligibility and remaining funds. To apply for one of these slots, please fill out an Enrichment Funds application and indicate Specialty Group Chair reserved slot in the supplemental information.
