PAS Travel Awards

These awards are available to all graduate students. Students may apply for up to $250 towards expenses associated with an Africa-related conference. A student may apply for one travel award each year. PAS prefers to fund students who will present at the conference, but others may apply.

Application instructions:

Applications are accepted and awarded on a rolling basis. The application must be submitted prior to participation in the conference. Depending on the university pay cycle, the applicant may not receive funds until after the conference.

 Applications must include the following for successful submission:

  1. All applications should be submitted as a PDF with an application cover sheet;
  2. An essay that describes the conference and how participation will benefit the applicant’s research (250 words);
  3. Include information on any panel participation and abstracts of papers to be presented (e.g. invitation letter, page featuring presentation from the conference program);
  4. A line item budget that clarifies how funds will be spent as well as other possible or definite sources of funding

Please direct questions to or call 847-491-7323.
