MPA Diversity Travel Award

Graduate students who are presenting at the 2017 MPA annual meeting (April 20-22) may apply for an MPA Diversity Travel Award. Individuals who identify as ethnic/racial minorities, first-generation college students, LGBT students, or students with a disability are eligible. Each award provides a $100 stipend to offset travel costs for the annual meeting. Typically, four awards are available.

To apply, email a letter of application, the original 400-word abstract of your paper or poster, and a letter of support from a faculty member to mpa@kent.edu by March 15, 2017.

Be sure to indicate how you meet the criteria. Also, include a brief paragraph about what you do to advance diversity, inclusion, or social justice issues. The MPA Diversity Statement can be found here.

Award recipients will be recognized and receive their stipend immediately prior to the Presidential Address on Friday of the conference. Previous winners are not eligible.
