Two funding opportunities that are available to offset travel costs for those interested in attending the Western Division AFS meeting in Mazatlan, Mexico April 7-11, 2014.

Currently the Western Division has an application process for their funds in place that you can access at the following website http://wdmeeting2014.wordpress.com/travel/funding-opportunities-for-professional-travel/. If you are interested in this particular grant, you must submit your application by October 31, 2013. So don’t delay, there is not much time left.

In addition to this, the Idaho Chapter and Parent society will also be offering travel grants for the Western Division meeting. Details regarding the travel grants being offered by the Idaho Chapter are available at: http://www.pnamp.org/document/4377 and deadlines for submission will be November 29, 2013.

WDAFS will be awarding around $15,000 in grants to professionals, and they try to give some funds to all students who attend and help at the meeting. In the past, most students have received around $500, but this year it will likely be more. The Idaho Chapter will be awarding $3,000-5,000 in travel grants to both professionals and students, and the Parent Society will be offering around $20,000.
