"The Society of Bead Researchers is happy to announce its first ever Student Conference Travel Award to assist undergraduate or graduate students to travel to a national or international conference to present a paper on some aspect of bead research. The award is for $500 and the applicant must be enrolled in a BA, MA, or PhD degree-granting program anywhere in the world. They also need to be a current member of the Society for Bead Researchers. (https://beadresearch.org/membership)
To apply for the award, you must submit the following:
1) Title and abstract (300 word limit) of your presentation;
2) Letter of acceptance from the conference where you plan to present the paper;
2) A brief statement outlining how your presentation expands our knowledge of beads and their role in society, and how your participation in the conference will be beneficial to your career and future research; and
3) Your CV, including your contact information, and the name and email of your faculty advisor.
Send the above material to Karlis Karklins (email@example.com), head of the Award’s Committee. The deadline for submissions for conferences in late 2018 and early 2019 is September 15, 2018. Pending availability of funds, a second award may be announced with a deadline of January 15, 2019 for conferences later in the year.
The awardee will be selected by the Executive Committee of the SBR on the basis of originality, scholarship, and relevance to the overall mission of the SBR (https://beadresearch.org/about-us/).
Applicants will be notified about the results of the award competition as soon as possible after the committee meets to decide on the award."
