We have received a total of 91 applications for travel grants to attend this Pan-American Advanced Studies Institute, for the 30 available grants. It is very good news indeed that such tremendous interest was garnered in what was only a handful of weeks of dissemination. But it will make it especially hard for the Committee to select the awardees.
In the next couple of weeks, a four-person Committee will go over the documentation (statements and CVs) submitted by the applicants, and prepare a short-list. All applicants will be contacted with news as soon as possible.
Thank you all for your interest!
Thanks to NSF award OISE-1036435 (with joint funding from DOE), we have available 30 travel grants for graduate students or postdoctoral fellows, to attend this PASI.
We expect to award 15 of these travel grants to students from the US, for which support consists of $1000 for air travel and $120 per day, for a maximum of 10 days, for expenses. The other 15 grants are expected to be awarded to students from other countries in Latin America, for which the support consists of $600 for air travel and $120 per day, for a maximum of 10 days, for expenses. If your travel were to be more expensive than the amount of the grant, you should ask your supervisor for supplementary support. If this is not possible, you may contact the PASI lead organizer, who will work with you to obtain a solution.
