Up to 30 accepted doctoral students will have all meeting fees waived (inclusive of the Midyear Meeting fee) and room nights at the conference hotel will be covered by the Section as follows:

  • Single occupancy – up to 2 nights
  • Double occupancy when shared with another consortium participant – up to 3 nights.

Accepted new faculty will have all consortium fees waived but will be required to pay the Midyear Meeting fee. Room nights will be covered by the Section only if all 30 funded slots are not taken by doctoral students as follows:

  •  Single occupancy – up to 2 nights
  •  Double occupancy when shared with another consortium participant – up to 3 nights

Hotel accommodations will be reimbursed AFTER the meeting, provided that the student/faculty attends the full consortium and Midyear Meeting and stays at the   meeting hotel.

Students/faculty should make their reservation directly with the hotel and will need to provide a credit card number to the hotel. A maximum of two students/faculty can stay in one hotel room. NOTE: students/faculty who share a room should provide both names to the hotel when making reservations. The deadline for hotel reservations is December 26. We cannot guarantee that any additional rooms will be available in the hotel once our block of rooms is sold out, even if the block is sold out before the deadline. If a student/faculty is unable to attend the meeting, the hotel reservations must be cancelled in advance to avoid a cancellation penalty.

Travel to and from the meeting is not sponsored by the section.
