Travel Grant Information for NAISA 2023 Tkaronto



To help offset costs associated with attending its annual meeting, NAISA offers a small travel grant. These costs are limited to Early Conference Registration, Air and/or Ground Travel, and Lodging. Given limited funds and in anticipation of a large pool of applicants, we anticipate awards will be between $500 and $1,200 USD. Awards will be paid as reimbursements to be collected at the conference site Registration desk. See the Form of Disbursement section below.


Any NAISA member in good standing whose abstract proposal has been accepted for the 2023 conference. The grants are intended to assist NAISA members with limited travel incomes, such as students, retirees, and community members. 


The travel grant will be allocated based on the following criteria:

  • Quality of applicant’s conference proposal
  • Financial need
  • Relative access to institutional funding
  • Contribution to the goals and aspirations of NAISA, and 
  • Connection to Indigenous Peoples and promotion of geographic, cultural, and/or intellectual diversity.
