Graduate Student Travel Awards


Nominations Due
February 28, 2018

Each year, three grants will be made to graduate students to help defray the costs of attending the annual conference.

Each year, three grants will be made to graduate students to help defray the costs of attending the annual conference.  Any student member of DSA enrolled in a graduate degree program and engaged in dance research is eligible. Students need not have a paper accepted for presentation at the conference in order to apply. Although applications from students presenting papers are encouraged, applications from students interested in attending a Working Group or simply listening and learning also are welcome. In all cases, applicants must demonstrate that attending the conference will further their research. There is no presumption that presenting, participating in a Working Group, or simply attending is the most grant-worthy application.

Individuals are eligible to receive a Graduate Student Travel Grant only once during their graduate career. Although student members of DSA may apply for the Travel Grant and the Selma Jeanne Cohen Prize or Gertrude Lippincott Prize in the same year, they may not accept both a travel grant and a prize in the same year.

Applicants must be members in good standing of DSA at the time of applying for the Graduate Student Travel Grant.
