APSA 2022 Political Communication Section Travel Funding Application

APSA's Political Communication section has budgeted substantial funds (twice as much as we have ever given) to support the travel costs of targeted section members attending the 2022 APSA conference or Political Communication pre-conference meeting in Montréal. Our funding will be distributed through two programs:

The SPARK program for students:
To encourage career development opportunities and greater representation and visibility in our field, the Political Communication Section of APSA will be helping to provide some financial support to several conference and preconference participants. This support will be given to a small number of students (undergraduate, Master’s, and Ph.D.), with preference given to students from underrepresented groups, broadly defined. Advisors are encouraged to reach out to their students and advocate for them to submit. If selected for funding, students would be provided with $700 they could use to help offset hotel reimbursement, travel or registration for the main APSA conference.

Travel funding:

If you are participating in the APSA conference or Political Communication preconference in Montréal this year and will be reimbursed for 50% or less of your hotel and airfare expenses for the conference, the Political Communication Section can help! Funds are limited, and preference will be given to graduate students, section members, participants who add to the diversity of the discipline, and those who are listed in the preconference or conference programs. Section members selected to receive this funding will need to provide receipts for reimbursement after the conference.

To be considered for travel funding, please fill out this application by no later than 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on August 1, 2022.
