Student Travel Funding

POPULATION ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA (PAA) TRAVEL

The highest funding priority is given to students who have a poster or paper on the program and to graduate students in the Population Studies Training Program. We also consider requests from those not on the program, with higher priority to those who have never attended PAA. Students who receive travel support are expected to work at the IPUMS exhibit booth and to attend the MPC reception. Funding is only available to MPC Student Members. How to become an MPC Member.

All students must complete a PAA Travel Funds Request Form by February 21, 2020. Notifications will be sent around March 2, 2020. 

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TRAVEL

MPC has limited funds available to support professional development for student members. These requests could include funds to attend workshops, courses, training sessions, or academic conference (not covered by PAA or project-related travel). 

To request professional development travel support, send an email briefly describing your request, including a budget, to mpctrain@umn.edu. Please email request with as much advance notice as possible.
