Susan Gay Graduate Student Conference Travel Scholarship


Susan Gay

The Susan Gay Graduate Student Conference Travel Scholarship was established to provide financial support to graduate students to attend the AMTE annual conference. This scholarship is named after Susan Gay in honor of her extraordinary service to AMTE over many years as conference director, president, secretary, and board member-at-large. Each year up to four graduate students will receive the award, which covers the cost of graduate student early registration and an additional $400 to offset the cost of attending the conference. To qualify for the scholarship, one must be a doctoral student making steady progress toward completion of a degree.  Applications will be screened initially based on the content of the application and then placed into a lottery based on geographic location.
