To be eligible for consideration, a student must have been admitted to Ph.D. candidacy by the tenure of the grant, and preferably by the time of application, and must complete the research project no later than May 1, 2012.
Deadline(s): Applications must be submitted no later than April 29, 2011 for support of travel planned for academic year 2011-2012. Application forms are available here.
