Stipend Opportunities at EER 2023
Take advantage of stipend opportunities to offset the cost of travel and registration. Stipends for travel, Academic Career Prep Workshop, and Review Camp are available by application. NAGT members receive $100 off registration. If you're not a member, you can join today!
A limited number of travel stipends are available for those in need of funds. Maximum stipends are $500 and are for airfare and/or lodging only. Applications are due by April 5, 2023.
Thanks to generous donations from NAGT members and supporters, this year's Preparing for an Academic Career workshop is currently able to offer stipends of $300 each to a limited number of graduate students attending the workshop. Applications are due by April 12.
Apply to participate in our annual "Review Camp" to help peer-review the collections of submitted teaching activities from Teach the Earth and NAGT-sponsored programs. For this important service, NAGT will provide a $500 stipend. Apply by May 3.
