Nancy "Penny" Schwartz Student Travel Grant

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.
