Spring 2020 Travel Award Update

Update on Spring 2020 travel awards

If faculty, staff or students hold a current Holtz Center travel award, but your conference or research trip was cancelled, you may roll your award over to another STS-related conference or trip. Simply keep Lyn Macgregor informed of your plans.

Summer/Fall 2020 travel awards available

The Holtz Center for Science and Technology Studies is offering travel awards in amounts up to $1000 to Holtz Center members, who are faculty and staff members presenting STS-related research at conferences. Faculty and staff members may apply by Wednesday, April 1 for travel between June 30 and December 31, 2020.

We also invite proposals for travel grants up to $1000 from graduate students working on STS-related research. Funds may be used for travel to research sites or for presenting papers at professional conferences. Some preference will be given to students with a Ph.D. minor in STS, but students in all UW-Madison departments are encouraged to apply. Eligible research activities include visits to ethnographic research sites, travel to conduct interviews or engage in collaborative work, and trips to archival collections and specialized libraries. Graduate students may also apply by Wednesday, April 1 for summer/Fall 2020 travel.
