The Mining History Association has a limited number of travel grants available for student presenters at the Annual Conference in Galena, Illinois, June 6-9, 2013. Presentations may focus on technology, business, social life, the environment, or any other aspect of mining, its associated industries, and its communities. There are no temporal or geographic limits. If you are a graduate or upper-division undergraduate student and would like to be considered for a travel grant, please e-mail a cover letter, addressed to the MHA Grants Committee, along with your presentation proposal (abstract and biographical information) by the deadline. In the cover letter, an applicant should estimate his/her travel costs to the conference (Galena, Illinois, June 6-9, 2013) and explain what he/she hopes to gain from the conference. This award is intended to help defray some of the direct travel costs to the conference.
The MHA Grants Committee determines the number of awards and their amounts. The grant also includes a waiver for the basic conference registration fee. Criteria for selection include travel distance and travel costs, an evaluation of how much the participant will benefit from the conference, and the significance of the presentation to mining history.
Grant Applications and questions should be sent by November 15, 2012 to: Brian Leech at BrianLeech@augustana.edu
By the same date, applicants should also send their presentation proposal to the conference program co-chairs, Duane Smith and Mark Vendl, at the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, to be considered for acceptance into the program.
