The POD Diversity Committee enthusiastically invites proposals for the 2013 Donald H. Wulff Travel Fellowships Program.
Named to honor the memory of an early supporter of the Diversity Committee, Donald H. Wulff, the travel fellowship program awards up to $1,200 to individuals (and up to $2,400 for teams of two or more) to support their travel to the annual POD Conference. The conference this year will be held in Pittsburgh, PA at the historic Omni William Penn Hotel, November 6-10. Conference registration/membership fees are deducted from the award and the remaining amount, if any, will be presented to you in the form of a check at the conference, made out to your institution.
Eligibility Criteria:The POD Diversity Committee welcomes applications from all individuals, irrespective of the individuals' nationality and/or citizenship. However, because of the particular demographic profile of POD as an organization, the applicant must meet the criteria for eligibility (listed below) with priority preference given to:
*persons from historically underrepresented racial and/or ethnic groups (as defined within the US context).
* individuals from traditionally underrepresented institutions including, but not limited to, the following: 1) Historically Black Colleges and Universities, 2) Native American Tribal Colleges, 3) Hispanic Serving Institutions or Hispanic Area Colleges and Institutions, and 4) Minority Serving Institutions (or those aspiring to become MSIs).
