Ambassador Grants provide matching funds for NEAIR members to attend a conference other than the NEAIR conference. The maximum award is $800. The primary emphasis of the Ambassador Grant is on participation at "non-mainstream" conferences, with the aim of broadening the horizons of both the attendee and the NEAIR membership at large. Non-institutional research conferences will be given preference. Proposals that include an intention to present at the Ambassador’s Conference will have preference. Please note that the funds are to be used for future conference travel; there is no reimbursement for activities that pre-date the acceptance of the proposal.
The call for applications will open on April 10th. The deadline for submission is May 12, 2017. Recipients will be notified by June 15, 2017.
