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., with a presentation, participation in a panel, are bringing a poster, or are presenting at Practical Cartography Day) will receive the strongest consideration for travel grants.

Additionally, in accordance with NACIS’s 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 $500USD in value, dependent on need of applicant. Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, and dispersal will begin June 30, 2022 until all funds have been allocated.


Travel grant applications are closed for 2022.
