A limited number of Travel Grant Awards are available for the forthcoming conference of the Association for Moral Education to assist low-income individuals with financial need, who are either students or college, university, and research institute faculty members from developing countries (as identified by the IMF in their low and middle income categories).
Only those whose proposals have been accepted for presentation, and are the first author or the presenting author, are eligible. Others will be considered as finances permit. Preference is given to those with financial need and to emerging scholars-- specifically, post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty (emerging scholars) within 5 years of finishing their terminal degree.
Applicants must be a citizen of the IMF country, and must reside in the country at the time of application and during the selection process, except if they are full-time students, post docs or emerging scholars as defined above. Applicants must be proficient in spoken and written English.
The awards vary, and may include early bird registration, accommodations, and economy level travel expenses. Fees for ticket changes, insurance, checked baggage, or preferred seating or other than basic economy travel, etc. are not reimbursed.
Awards are reimbursements. Awardees pay their expenses and receive reimbursement after all receipts for their expenses have been provided to the AME Treasurer, Phyllis Curtis Tweed. The maximum award is $1,000 US, but awards of lower amounts may be granted.
The AME Treasurer reimburses award recipients via a check (preferred). If necessary, a wire to a bank outside of the US may be arranged. Information for bank wires must be typed (and not handwritten) and verified with the recipients’s bank before the award is sent. The award recipient will be charged a fine if any information is incorrect or incomplete. Awards are limited to the amount awarded, and must comply with stated limits of the award stated above.
Award recipients are selected by the Conference Chairs in consultation with the AME Treasurer and President.
