APSA Foreign Policy Travel Grant for Graduate Students

The Foreign Policy Graduate Student Travel Grant: This competitive grant is designed to support the travel costs of a graduate student who currently studies in an academic institution to attend the 2022 APSA annual convention in person from outside of Montreal. The recipient must be a member of the APSA FP section at the time of convention and have a paper accepted for the annual convention on an FP-sponsored panel. The grant recipient will receive a $500 cash reimbursement for travel, accommodation, and/or registration fees directly accrued from their in-person attendance at the convention. The reimbursement will be paid directly to the awardee in person at the APSA Annual Convention. The grant committee is comprised of members of the FP section board. The grant committee reserves the right not to award a grant if it is decided that no submitted applications are eligible for or deserving of the funds. Graduate students from underrepresented backgrounds who fit these criteria are strongly encouraged to apply.
To apply, candidates must submit (1) motivation letter (max. 250 words), (2) abstract of the accepted paper, (3) evidence of annual convention acceptance (including panel sponsor information). The motivation letter should discuss how attendance at APSA benefits the applicant’s research and career objectives. Examples include plans to network, attend other panels and events, receive feedback on own presentation, etc.. Make sure to include your full name and APSA ID number.  Submissions with an explanation of more than 250 words or missing any of these documents will not be considered. All application materials should be sent via email to Foreign Policy section committee members Prof. Danielle Lupton (dlupton@colgate.edu) and Prof. Dov Levin (dovlvn@hku.hk). The deadline is June 15. The section will notify the recipient if they were awarded this granted by the end of July.
