Conference Travel Grants

Posted on September 5, 2017

The AMIA/SFSFF Travel Grant and the AMIA Community Fund Travel Grants offer reimbursement of up to $1,000 for travel and other expenses but differ slightly in the full package.  You may apply for both grants, but must apply separately and the statement information is different for each application.

Thank you to the San Francisco Silent Film Festival; a Western Digital Brand; Roundabout Entertainment, and DigiPres Labs for support of AMIA’s travel grant program.


AMIA Community Fund Travel Grant

This year $11,500 will be awarded in Community Fund Travel Grants up to $1,000 each.  A huge thank you to everyone who has donated to the fund this year and to the sponsors who have made additional funding – HGST, a Western Digital brand; Roundabout Entertainment; and, DigiPres Labs.

Reflected in our Statement of Diversity, Inclusion and Equity adopted earlier this year, AMIA is committed to cultivating an environment in which in a multiplicity of voices are sought, listened to and respected. In order to increase and encourage diversity, inclusion, and equity at the conference, special consideration will be given to underrepresented individuals and those whose work shows a commitment to diversity in the field.
