Graduate Student Awards
The application form is now available at http://proposals.aaal.org/.
The deadline for applications is December 1, 2010.
To help support travel (and some expenses) of 6 graduate student members of AAAL to the annual conference.
You must be a student member of AAAL at the time of application, as well as enrolled in a university Master's or Ph.D. program in applied linguistics or a related field.
You must be an accepted and confirmed paper or poster presenter at the upcoming conference. Previous GST award recipients are not eligible to submit. Students enrolled in a university program within a reasonable distance of the conference site may not be eligible to receive the award.
A maximum of 6 awards will be given: $800.00 each for up to four Ph.D. student awards and up to two Master's student awards. In addition, the awards include the waiving of conference registration fees. Two of the six awards - the ETS Graduate Student Award Scholarship and the Multilingual Matters Graduate Student Award Scholarship - will be awarded to the two top-ranked Ph.D. student applicants.
This is a merit-based scholarship/award. The primary consideration in granting the award is the academic merit shown by the student.
