Who is eligible for a grant?
To apply for a travel grant, you must be in one of the grant categories found here. Applying for a grant type that you are not eligible for will invalidate the travel grant application.
Participants who received a travel grant in any of the last three Congresses (2017, 2018, 2019) will not qualify for a grant for the 2020 Congress. Additionally, if LASA was not notified of your inability to attend the Congress and your grant was not re-assigned to another possible candidate, you will not be eligible to receive a grant for the 2020 Congress.
Individuals who are part of a panel should request an individual travel grant. The panel organizer should not request a grant for him/her. Each co-author needs to send his/her individual travel grant request, one application for both is not acceptable.
Additionally, individuals who apply for a travel grant must be paper presenters. Workshop and roundtable participants, as well as chairs, discussants and organizers are not eligible for a grant.
You will find more information about the travel grants requirements here.
Additionally, there are other track specific grants given via institutions.
When should I expect to know if I have received a grant?
Accepted individuals, who applied for funding by September 5, 2019 at 17:00 hours EDT, will be notified about their requests by December 13, 2019.
The level of financial support for Congress travel is limited. We ask that you do not make inquiries to the Program Chairs, Track Chairs or Section Chairs regarding the status of funding requests. Applications for grants will not be accepted for LASA2020 after the deadline.
