Graduate Student Committee Scholarship Call for Applications

Graduate Student Committee Scholarship Call for Applications

The NARST Graduate Student Committee is offering travel scholarships designed to cover registration fees and travel expenses for graduate students in science and STEM education to attend the NARST Annual Conference 2022 to be held March 27-30, virtually and in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Scholarships are one-time, need-based awards. The application deadline is January 31, 2022.

NARST-GSC Scholarship Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for the scholarship, the applicant must:

  • Be a member of NARST
  • Have an accepted proposal and/or be a first-time conference attendee
  • Demonstrate some declared financial need
  • Not receiving any financial support from parent institution
  • Not also receiving a scholarship from another NARST committee (i.e., Basu Scholarship, International Committee travel award, etc.)

Priority will be given to applicants who are coming from ‘underrepresented’ institutions at NARST. Eligibility decisions will be made based on collaborative sub-committee discussions. Applications which are ranked highest will be selected for the scholarship on a lottery basis.

Those who receive a travel award from NARST and attend in person will be required to sign a release and waiver of liability before receipt of the award.

Please make sure that you have a recommendation letter from your advisor/graduate coordinator before you start your application. You will be asked to upload your letter at the end of the application form.
