About this funder:



NOTE: Given the cancelation of the 2020 AAS annual meeting, the society is not offering travel grants.

NOTE: Travel grant applicants must be current, student members of the society. The deadline for membership payment for all travel grant applicants is the "letter of inquiry" deadline above ~ two weeks prior to the travel grant deadline.

Awards of up to $800 will be considered for high school, undergraduate, graduate student, or postdoctoral students with limited or no funding support who are presenting authors on a poster or oral presentation at the meeting. In addition to the travel funds, students who demonstrate a need may also receive waived registration costs.

The American Arachnological Society also reserves travel funding to support the attendance of students from universities/institutions from Mexico, Central, and South America (including the Caribbean) to attend the annual meetings of the AAS. This funding is in addition to student travel grants described above. A student can receive funding from only one of our funding sources and, therefore, need submit only this one application. Students from the Americas may also request waived registration fees if they can demonstrate a need.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • All Applicants must be members of The American Arachnological Society.
  • Applicants must be high school, undergraduate or graduate student members of the AAS with limited or no funding support.

You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. If an applicant cannot afford membership fees, contact the AAS membership secretary, Jeff Shultz, so that a membership sponsor can be arranged.


  • Priority will be given to individuals who have a demonstrated financial need that cannot be met by other sources (e.g., advisor, department, or university) and based on the following criteria for ranking applications: quality of Abstract, articulation of benefits, and strength of support letter. 


  • AAS cannot (by law) provide travel funds for individuals who reside in US embargoed countries.
