In addition to the COW and OWL awards, WT-AWIS gives Travel Awards to WT-AWIS members who have demonstrated their commitment to supporting and being outstanding women in science. The goal for the WT-AWIS Travel Award is to support women in STEAM disciplines by providing supplemental travel funding for the purpose of attending and presenting at STEAM conferences and workshops. WT-AWIS Travel Award Applications for professional travel support will be accepted on a rolling submissions basis throughout the year and will award up to $200 per individual and cannot be the sole source of support for the travel. Personal funds are an acceptable source of additional support. Apply here.
