Travel Grants & Awards


Since 2009, the AJS has awarded more than $165,000 in travel grant funding to its members. The AJS remains committed to supporting wide participation in the conference. In particular, the AJS seeks to support untenured faculty, graduate students, independent scholars without full-time employment, and international scholars who receive little to no institutional support for conference travel.

Information about travel grants for the 49th Annual Conference will be available in mid-August. Please check back then for more information and instructions on how to apply.
