DEADLINE: June 1, 2019

Thanks to a generous donation from an anonymous donor, the Society is pleased to announce the SHERA Graduate Student / Independent Scholar Travel Grant of up to $1,000 for local travel and up to $1,500 for international travel to one member presenting a paper at the ASEEES Annual Convention in San Francisco from Saturday, November 23 to Tuesday, November 26, 2019.

Applications will be evaluated based on the academic merit of the paper and financial need. SHERA is especially committed to subsidizing a graduate student or independent scholar who is attending the conference for the first time and presenting a paper, and who has no local institutional resources for travel support. Eligible independent scholars are those SHERA members who have been awarded the Ph.D. within the previous five years. For the ASEEES 2019 grant, applications are limited to those who have received the Ph.D. no earlier than 2014. 

Applicants must be SHERA members in good standing and must submit:

1. the title and a brief description of their paper (no more than 250 words);
2. a brief CV (no more than two pages);
3. the names of the chair(s) and the title of the panel in which the applicant is participating;
4. and, a brief statement demonstrating need.

For more information on membership or to become a member, see

Within two months after the conference, the recipient is required to submit to the SHERA Board a brief report outlining how participation in the conference furthered the development of their research. If the recipient has to withdraw from the conference for any reason, all funds must be returned to SHERA no later than the opening day of the conference.

Applications are due June 1 for notification on June 15.

All application materials must be submitted in one .pdf file to
