Awards for in-person attendance may be applied only to conference registration fees and related expenses (such as travel, lodging, and food) incurred to attend the 2022 Annual Meeting. Awards for virtual attendance will provide complimentary registration to the 2022 virtual conference platform. Only current SAA members are eligible for these awards. Applicants must complete the online form and attach a résumé or curriculum vitae.

The primary criterion for selection will be financial need. Responsibilities as a caregiver for children, parents, partners/spouses, or other family members will be considered in evaluating financial need.

 Applications are due no later than Sunday, June 12, 2022.


All applicants will be notified of the status of their application by June 30, in advance of the July 5 early-bird registration deadline.

Award determinations will be made by a selection committee comprising three SAA Foundation Board members and one SAA Council member and will be based on applicants’ responses to the following: 

  • How will attendance at the SAA Annual Meeting contribute to your professional development and career goals?
  • Provide an explanation of your financial need.

Requirements: Awardees are required to attend the entire conference. Within 30 days of the end of the Annual Meeting, awardees must submit: a meeting evaluation form demonstrating attendance at sessions and all-attendee events; expense receipts totaling up to $1,200 (for in-person recipients); and a 400- to 600-word report assessing the value received from the travel award and noting any suggestions for improving the travel award process.
