ANNOUNCING THE 2015 YOUNG SCHOLARS PROGRAM
APEE has received a grant to help young faculty and graduate students attend our annual meeting April 12-14, 2015 in Cancun, Mexico. Successful applicants will have their registration fees reduced to $80 (normally $452) and be eligible for a stipend to help offset travel expenses. These funds are designed to encourage younger scholars to consider the advantages of APEE membership. Funds are limited, and a strong preference will be given to first time attendees who are on the program. While second time recipients will remain eligible, limited funding dictates that recipients of more than one past award under the program should not expect to receive funding.
To apply, please supply the following: (1) a short essay (250-300 words) explaining why the applicant wishes to attend the meeting; (2) a short letter of reference, preferably from an APEE member or someone known to APEE, indicating why support should be provided to the nominee, and (3) a brief note from the applicant's department chair or graduate director indicating the level of departmental support that the applicant can expect for this trip. The deadline for applying is January 19, 2015. Those selected will be notified within two weeks of that date. Successful applicants will be required to register for the conference (at the reduced rate of $80) by February 16, 2015.
Please send applications to Dr. Frank Stephenson at email@example.com. If you have questions, you may email him or call him at (706) 238-7878.
