A limited number of grants will be available for selected applicants who will receive a prepaid debit card to cover accommodation and food, and a contribution towards travel expenses. The grant will also cover full conference registration.
The deadline for the submission of applications is Wednesday, December 7, 2011. Requests received after that date cannot be taken into consideration.
Applications for grants must be made using a Webform available through SPMS. A letter of support signed by the student's advisor should be sent directly from the advisor to the Program Coordinator, Lorraine Day, or fax to +1-225-578-6954, also by December 7, 2011.
Regrettably, the grants do not cover all costs involved in attending the conference. The number and value of the grants will be announced at the time of awarding early February, 2012.
Successful applicants will be required to respond with a formal confirmation by end February, 2012. Once confirmation has been received, grant awardees can then register.
