Travel Grants

To broaden participation in the annual Conference, AMIA has developed a travel grant program to help defray costs and encourage attendance for those who might not otherwise be able to attend.  Travel grants are funded through the generosity of AMIA members and donors.

AMIA Community Fund

The AMIA Community Fund was established to pay tribute to the work of AMIA members, and offer colleagues, friends and families a way to honor contributions to the moving image field. The Fund provides grants of up to $1,000 for travel to the annual Conference.  Community Fund travel grants are funded through donations from members.

The San Francisco Silent Film Festival Travel Grant

The San Francisco Silent Film Festival Travel Grant was established to help develop new media archivists, the caretakers of our film heritage.  The Grant offers $1,000 to cover travel funding for the AMIA Annual Conference as well as registration to the annual San Francisco Silent Film Festival.  The grant is intended for those entering the field, new professionals and students, and AMIA members are eligible.
