Hagen Family Foundation Scholarship (Travel)

This award was initiated in 2009. The objective of the award is “to extend the opportunity to attend the ARIA meeting to those who would not otherwise attend, yet would benefit from the interaction with their peers.” Awards of up to $1,500 each will be granted to faculty and/or doctoral students who attend and present a paper at the Annual Meeting. To be eligible for a travel award, an applicant must:

  • Be a faculty member or Ph.D. student from a U.S. or foreign university
  • Have a research presentation accepted for the current year’s ARIA meeting program
  • Indicate a lack of funding from their institution for the purpose of attending the ARIA meeting

Applicants’ papers will be reviewed by the ARIA program committee and if accepted, the application will be evaluated by the Hagen Family Foundation Travel Award Committee. Priority will be given to applicants who have not received funding from this award in the previous three years. If more than one paper is deemed eligible for consideration, then the selection decision will be based on the merits of the papers and the financial need of the applicant.  Applicants must submit the application form along with a complete paper and curriculum vita. to the Hagen Family Foundation Travel Award Committee Chair. Materials may be submitted electronically.
