AAS Trust Travel Grants
The AAS Trust Travel Awards are to assist with travel to an international conference. Applicants must apply in the round in which their conference date falls. Applicants will be able to receive funds retrospectively. Applications will be assessed together and ranked by the Trustees after the close of each round. The successful applicants will have been ranked as the top two in each round. Consideration will be given to the prestige of the conference, its alignment with the aims and mission of the AAS and the type of presentation that is being given (i.e. poster/oral). Applicants must show evidence of abstract acceptance and presentation type.
