Travel Grants

PLEASE NOTE: The Jan. 7th submission deadline has passed and we are no longer accepting additional travel grant applications. All successful applicants for 2019-2020 have been notified.

The ACLA offers several types of travel grants for ACLA members attending the annual ACLA conference.

  • ACLA Travel Grants ($200.00 each)
  • ACLA Travel Grants for Graduate Students ($200 each)
  • Haskell Block Grant [for International Graduate Students ONLY] (2 offered per year at $500 each)
The ACLA will begin accepting travel grant applications for the 2020 Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois only AFTER the seminars for the 2020 Annual Meeting have been selected.  The seminar selections process should be complete in November 2019 and travel grant applications will be open at that time to those whose papers have been accepted for the 2020 Annual Meeting. The travel grant application process will close on January 7th, 2020. 

Please note that, with regret, the ACLA is unable to process travel grants for citizens of certain nations designated by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the US Treasury. As of April 2019, that list includes the following countries: Belarus, Cote D'IvoireCuba, Democratic Republic of CongoIranIraqLiberia, MyanmarNorth Korea, SudanSyria, and Zimbabwe. This list is subject to change; consult for details.
