Grad Student Travel Grants for the 2011 AAAS Annual Meeting

Thanks to a generous donation from a member, Section L (History & Philosophy of Science) of the American Association for the Advancement of Science will offer a limited number of Philip Morrison fellowships for graduate students studying history or philosophy of science and technology who are presenting posters at the association's next annual meeting in Washington, DC, February 17-21, 2011 (http://www.aaas.org/meetings/).

October 25 is the deadline to submit poster proposals at http://aaas.confex.com/aaas/2011/poster/cfp.cgi/. The grant is to defray costs of travel, lodging, and registration up to $500.  Highest preference will be given to graduate students who are presenting posters or otherwise on the program; secondary preference will be given those who serve as session aides at the meeting (see http://www.aaas.org/meetings/2011/ts/aides.shtml).

To apply, send a CV, a statement of support from your advisor, and a brief statement about why attending this meeting would benefit your program of study, to Jonathan Coopersmith, Secretary, Section L, AAAS, j-coopersmith@tamu.edu.  The deadline for grant applications is December 1.  Notification of awards will be made by December 15.
