Student travel award

Steven Black

Dear all,

Due to a dearth of submission, the Society for Medical Anthropology student travel award deadline has been extended until September 10. Please share with any students who you think might be interested.


Graduate students applying for the award must submit the following:


1.      Proof of current SMA student membership.

2.      Copy of the conference abstract.

3.      Proof of acceptance of the abstract.

4.      Recommendation letter from an advisor (directly sent by the recommender as an email attachment to the committee chair, Steven Black [sblack@...]).


See the travel award website for more information:


Take care,


Steven P. Black

(One of the great things about email is that it is asynchronous mediated communication. Therefore, please do not expect an immediate response)
