Underrepresented Racial, Ethnic, and Ability Groups (UREAG) Travel Grant
In line with CIES's mission of global participation, the UREAG travel grant is designed to recognize efforts of students from under-represented ethnic and ability groups who need support for travel to the CIES conference to present the results of scholarly research. This travel grant is generously funded by the CIES Secretariat. In 2012, UREAG provided 17 presenters support ranging from $200-$400 each. UREAG travel grants are awarded based on the quality of the application, institutional representation, and attention to diversity. Special consideration is given to applicants traveling from outside North America.
