Nancy "Penny" Schwartz Student Travel Grant

In the spirit of Nancy "Penny" Schwartz's commitment to promoting the participation and scholarship of students at the ASA annual meeting, for 2021, the Steering Committee has decided to provide funding for a graduate student or students to virtually participate in the program. The 2021 award will cover the cost of registration and one year of ASA membership.

 

This award honors Penny Schwartz, who was active in the ASA Women's Caucus and at her death, left us a sum of money. Penny did not specify its purpose but her friends, recognizing her interest in students, created this fund. The intent is to help students who participate in the ASA annual meeting (by giving a paper, for example) to attend the meeting by contributing to their travel expenses. Any woman who is a student in an African country or in the U.S. may apply. 

The committee will be chaired this year by Dr. Ruth Opara of Columbia University.

Submit your application to the chair of the committee by September 30, 2021.
