  • The Student Travel Grant is available to SSA student members who must travel more than 500 km (311 miles) to attend the meeting.
  • The ESC/SSA Travel Grant is available to anyone traveling from a member-state of the European Seismological Commission. This grant is provided under a cooperative agreement between SSA and ESC.

Applications will be accepted starting 1 November 2016 and are due by 30 November 2016. Travel grants cover the cost of meeting registration and provide a modest cash award (for the 2016 meeting, U.S. based students received a cash award of $700 and international-based students received $1500 cash, in addition to the waived registration fee). Only one application per institution may be awarded.

Please note: In order for their applications to be considered, all STUDENTS applying for any of these grants must have a faculty advisor submit a 1-2 paragraph letter of support.
