This year MAWCA will be awarding up to $2000 in scholarships for participants to attend this year's regional conference. Scholarships will include registration fees and/or a one-night hotel stay. Applications are due Friday, January 8, 2016, and notification to award recipients will be announced in early February.
Note to Applicants: Scholarships are awarded to groups or to individual presenters. Applying as a group means that your group members are part of a collaborative session (such as a group-created study, a fishbowl, or a group-organized panel). In that case, please only submit one application for the group. Applying as an individual means that your presentation is independent of others', whether you present individually or as part of a panel. In that case, please submit one application for yourself. Other panel members should also apply as individuals. Individuals who are not presenting but attending MAWCA for the first time can also apply for a scholarship.
All applicants will be assessed on the overall quality of the application and how it specifically addresses these areas: adherence to the conference theme, the potential for contribution of new research, and the extent to which the project and participants bring new perspectives and voices to MAWCA. Consider keeping this criteria in mind as you complete the scholarship application. Awardees will be notified before the early registration deadline.
