To encourage graduate students to present papers at its meetings, the Historical Astronomy Division (HAD) of the American Astronomical Society will present up to one award for each of its meetings.
The award will consist of $500, to be paid after the meeting at which the student presents a paper, either oral or display.
Any current graduate student is eligible. A student may not receive the award more than once.
The application deadline is two weeks before the regular (not late) deadline for submission of abstracts for the meeting. For example, the deadline for the January 2013 meeting is 1 October 2012, so the deadline to apply for the student travel award is 17 September 2012. To apply, the student should send the abstract of the paper to the HAD Secretary-Treasurer. The student’s academic advisor should also send a message stating that the student is currently enrolled and will not complete the doctorate before the meeting.
The HAD Committee will make the decision and inform the recipient before the deadline to submit the abstract to the American Astronomical Society. The Committee reserves the right to make no award for any given meeting.
