Subject:  Travel Grants to attend the Annual Assembly and Summer Retreat of
the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS)

*****************
This message is being distributed to multiple lists.  We apologize for any
duplication.
*****************

We have just received notice from J.W.Harrington at the National Science
Foundation that some NSF funds are likely to be made available for travel
grants to graduate students from any university in the U.S. whose proposed
papers are accepted for presentation at the UCGIS Annual Assembly and
Summer Retreat in Bar Harbor, Maine, June 15-21.  Papers are being accepted
based on submission of an abstract and details of the meeting and abstract
guidelines may be found at http://www.ucgis.org or directly at
http://www.spatial.maine.edu/ucgis/ucgis_conference.html.

The partial travel grants from NSF will be conditioned upon receiving a
matching grant from your own institution and no grant will be made to
students within a five hour drive of the conference site (that is, grad
students in Boston and most of New England do not qualify).  The acceptance
of your paper through a national peer review process and the honor of
receiving an NSF award for part of your expenses should go a long way in
enabling you to receive matching funds from administrators at your own
university.  You will not lose the partial travel grant from NSF if your
university fails to provide matching funds and you still choose to attend
provided that your university writes a letter, preferably at the Dean level
or above, stating that your university is unable or unwilling to match the
NSF travel grant award.  The NSF awards are NOT intended to cover any
portion of your room or board expenses.  Approximately forty awards will be
made although more graduate student papers will be accepted for the
Assembly.

As a condition for receiving this funding and to allow more students to
become aware of this opportunity, THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS
BY GRADUATE STUDENTS IS BEING REOPENED AND EXTENDED TO FRIDAY FEBRUARY 7,
1997.  Those who have already submitted an abstract need not submit again.

The abstract review process will be accomplished by university professors
in multiple disciplines from multiple universities with a majority of the
reviewers from other than UCGIS institutions.  The exact amount of the
awards and any further conditions imposed by NSF will be placed on the web
site.

We look forward to receiving your submission!
Harlan Onsrud, Co-Program Chair, [log in to unmask]
