Overview:

The AFS Equal Opportunities Section is leading an effort to increase participation in the Society by graduate and undergraduate students from underrepresented groups, including women and minorities. Travel grants not to exceed $500 each will be awarded on a competitive basis to assist these students with expenses incurred when attending the annual meeting. We will provide as many awards as we have funding for (typically 3-5). Funds are not distributed in advance. Students must be present at the Equal Opportunities Society section luncheon and business meeting at the Annual Meeting to receive the funds.

We will support award recipients during the meeting through orientation and mentorship, if desired by the student. There are wonderful networking opportunities, technical sessions, continuing education, trade show displays, and career/job opportunities, and graduate school opportunities at the meeting. 

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