Travel & Local Information

2019 Travel Grant Information:

ISHR seeks to expand its international membership and recognizes that funding for attending scholarly conference differs greatly from one country to another. To encourage and support scholars from underrepresented countries* to participate in our next conference, we have set aside funds to assist such scholars. 

The criteria are:

  1. Citizenship in an underrepresented country or employment in an educational institution in such a country*;
  2. Acceptance to give a paper at the conference and to membership in ISHR. (Chairing a panel in itself is not a criteria.)
  3. The quality of the explanation or justification for the application.

Important: all travel grants will be given as support at the conference location itself. These could include: registration waivers, waiver for banquet fees, and hotel room charges. Support will be specified to the applicant when the award is made. ISHR will not under any circumstances cover airfare or other travel expenses, any expenses not part of the conference itself such as travel visas, or meals other than the banquet. 

The on-line application may be found HERE.

Awards will be decided by a committee of ISHR officers and may be appealed.
