CSECS Conference Travel Support for Graduate Student and Recent Ph.D. Presenters
CSECS is committed to providing travel assistance to graduate students and to recent Ph.D.s who are ineligible for institutional assistance. Because resources are limited, assistance will be partial and priority will be given to graduate student presenters. Applicants must be members of CSECS in order to apply, and receipts must accompany all requests. Additional information about the application process will be posted in August 2017.

John H. O'Neill Bursaries
The John H. O'Neill Bursaries are awards of up to $500 to graduate students to assist with the cost of travel to the Annual Meeting. In 2002 the Society voted to name these bursaries in honor of John H. O'Neill of the English department of Hamilton College, who has served as editor of the NEASECS Newsletter since 1989. The Chairs of the Annual Meeting determine the recipients, and up to six awards may be made per year. Graduate students who are presenting papers at the Annual Meeting and wish to apply for John H. O'Neill Bursaries should contact the NEASECS President Joseph Bartolomeo at bartolomeo@hfa.umass.edu by October 1, 2017.
