We will be awarding six travel grants to the authors of the six best abstracts that have been accepted for presentation at the conference.  This year the Travel Awards will be $1000.00 for members traveling from the Americas and $750.00 for those traveling within Europe.  Applicants are urged to consider re-writing their abstracts before submitting them, especially if they were shorter than the one-page maximum.

The award is intended for students and those in the early stages of their careers.  The grant will be given to scholars meeting these criteria who:
– are participating in the Olomouc conference
– have had their abstracts approved by the organizers
– have paid their 2017 membership dues

Those interested in applying for this grant should send a copy of their abstract in either Microsoft Word or PDF format to both:
Svetla Slaveva-Griffin <sslavevagriffin@fsu.edu>
Tomáš Nejeschleba <tomas.nejeschleba@upol.cz>

Please let the judges know whether you are a student or beginning your academic career.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is March 17, 2017.

Awards will be announced by April 3, 2017.  If you have questions, please email John Finamore at john-finamore@uiowa.edu
