Travel Grants

NAISA makes small grants to help offset costs associated with attending its annual meeting. These costs are limited to Early Conference Registration, Air or Ground Travel, and Hotel rooms. Financial or procedural assistance for securing official travel documentation (e.g passports, visas) is not covered. Given limited funds and in anticipation of a large pool of applicants, a grantee should not expect to receive an amount to cover the entire or even a substantial part of the cost of attending the conference.
