Government and Nonprofit Section Midyear Meeting Travel Grants
The GNP Section sponsors $1000 travel grants for the midyear GNP section meeting. The grants are intended to assist doctoral students interested in GNP research by defraying a portion of the costs of attending these meetings and to allow doctoral students interested in GNP topics to interact with GNP Section members.
In return for the grant, recipients will be expected to attend GNP workshops (at no cost, of course) where they will be introduced to Section members that have similar teaching and research interests.
Applicants should send a letter which describes their interest in governmental and nonprofit accounting teaching and research and provides support on why they feel they should receive the grant. Please include an e-mail address and phone number.
The deadlines for travel grant submissions is December 15.
Applicants generally will only be funded one time.
Please email your letter of application to:
Doctoral Program Liaison
Amanda W. Beck
Email submissions are preferred. If you have further questions you can contact Amanda at email@example.com.
