Small Research Grants for Students

Please see below for information on the Outreach Travel Grant, supporting attendance at the 2020 AMIS Meeting in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Please read further and feel free to forward on to others who may be interested!


The Outreach Travel Grant has been established to support international delegates to attend the Society's meetings. This year's $1000 grant will support Mexican citizens currently residing in Mexico to attend the 2020 Annual Meeting and will provide the successful applicants with financial assistance to cover expenses related to attending the Society’s 2020 annual meeting. We welcome applicants with career interests that relate to the mission of the American Musical Instrument Society. There is no age limit and applicants can also apply to the William E. Gribbon Memorial Fund, if eligible. Preference will be given to a delegate presenting a paper at the conference. This grant will be administered by the Gribbon Committee.
