Travel Grants

APSA will provide travel grants to attend the APSA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC to U.S. graduate students, international graduate students studying in the U.S., unemployed members, international scholars, community college faculty, and contingent faculty.

Travel grants are intended to defray the costs of travel to the meeting, such as mileage for attendees who travel by car or the cost of a bus, train, or plane ticket.  The grant can also cover meals and hotel stays.  For more information about the costs that are eligible for reimbursement by a travel grant, please read the travel grant policy prior to your application.

Your membership with APSA must be active in order to qualify for a travel grant.  For questions about eligibility or other inquiries about the program, please contact our team at
