Nancy "Penny" Schwartz Student Travel Grant
This award honors Nancy “Penny” Schwartz, who was active in the ASA Women's Caucus and bequeathed to it funds which her friends, recognizing her interest in students, invested to create the Student Travel Grant. The intent is to assist students who will be participating in the ASA Annual Meeting as presenters or discussants, by contributing $500 towards their travel expenses. Any woman who is a student either in an African country or in the U.S. may apply, provided that she is registered as an ASA and Women’s Caucus member at the time of application.
