The Edward H. and Rosamond B. Spicer
The Spicer Student Travel Fund Awards commemorate the lifelong and very special concern of Edward H. and Rosamond B. Spicer in furthering the maturation of students in the social sciences, both intellectually and practically, and their lifelong interest in the nature of community as both cause of, and solution to, problems in the human condition. Two awards of $500 each are available to students who meet the eligibility qualifications.
Who is eligible?
Individuals who have been enrolled as students during some part of the current year and who have submitted a paper abstract for the Annual Meeting Program, which has been accepted. Students who are presenting a poster are not eligible. If the abstract is co-authored, the student applying for the student travel award must have participated to a substantive degree in the research/writing. The abstract (and paper) should be based on some concern for "community," broadly conceived. Preference will be given to student applicants who do not have another source of financial support.
How to apply?

You may apply via E-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or FAX (405/843-8553). The results of the competition will be announced in February. Awardees are required to provide SfAA with a bio, picture, and travel receipts to receive payment.
