Thanks to a generous donation from a member, Section L (History & Philosophy of Science) of the American Association for the Advancement of Science will offer a limited number of Philip Morrison fellowships for graduate students studying history or philosophy of science and technology presenting posters at the Association’s next Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, February 17-21, 2011 (http://www.aaas.org/meetings/).
October 25 is the deadline to submit poster proposals at http://aaas.confex.com/aaas/2011/poster/cfp.cgi/. The grant is to defray costs of travel, lodging, and registration up to $500. Highest preference will be graduate students who are presenting posters or otherwise on the program; secondary preference will be those who serve as session aides at the meeting (see http://meeting2011.aaas.org/sessionaide/default.aspx).
To apply, send a CV, a statement of support from your advisor, and a brief statement why attending this meeting would benefit your program of study, to Jonathan Coopersmith, Secretary, Section L, AAAS, firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for application is December 1. Notification of awards will be made by December 15.
