NACIS Travel Grants

NACIS has travel grant initiatives that invest in the future growth and strength of the organization. These initiatives (1) encourage student attendance and participation at the annual fall meeting, and (2) support the attendance of general NACIS members to attend the annual meeting who could not otherwise attend due to financial limitations.

Travel grant awardees are expected to attend the entire conference. While NACIS strives to support all members needing assistance, applicants who are actively participating in the meeting (e.g., presenting in a Main Conference session, participating in a panel, bringing a poster, or presenting at Practical Cartography Day) will receive the strongest consideration for travel grants.

In accordance with NACIS’ commitment to diversity and inclusion, at least 20% of all budgeted travel grant awards will be prioritized for individuals from minority or underrepresented groups.

Grants awarded will be up to $500 in value, dependent on the need of the applicant. Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Issuance of grants will begin June 30, 2023 and continue until all funds have been allocated.
