Dorothy M. and Earl S. Hoffman Travel Grants

The Hoffman Travel Grants have been created in an effort to promote student involvement in AVS and encourage their participation in the annual AVS International Symposium.

These travel grants will be given to any applying graduate students who meet the following criteria:
  1. You must be the presenter of an accepted Symposium abstract
  2. You must be a full-time graduate student.
  3. The grant is not transferable.
  4. You must attend the Symposium to receive the grant.
  5. You are not eligible to receive the grant if you are receiving any other travel support from AVS.
An invitation e-mail will be sent to eligible students (late June 2017) and the student should apply for the grant by return e-mail to the AVS National Office.

The application deadline is Friday, August 18, 2017. Should your application be approved, you will receive an e-mail notification by Friday, September 15, 2017. Grants will be given on a random basis until the 2017 funds are depleted. Funds for the grant recipients will be available at the Symposium Registration Manager's desk, and you will also be asked to present a student I.D. Please note that all travel grants must be collected at the meeting.
