AMIA is offering 11 travel grants for this year’s conference in Pittsburgh, PA – November 9-12, 2016.
The first grant is sponsored by the San Francisco Silent Film Festival – allowing the recipient an opportunity to also attend the Festival in 2017. Nine are sponsored by your contributions to the AMIA Community Fund. Your donations and matching funds from AMIA increased this year’s grants from four in 2015 to 10 in 2016!
Grants are open to AMIA members and offer reimbursement of up to $1,000 for travel and other expenses but differ slightly in the full package. You may apply for both grants, but must apply separately.
