Please see the following important deadlines for SCS prizes and Annual Meeting Travel Stipend Awards:

Nominations for the Excellence in Precollegiate Teaching Awards are due by September 8.

Nominations for the Outreach Prize are due by September 18.

We are delighted that we will be able to offer a total of $21,000 in funding for graduate students and contingent faculty participating in the Annual Meeting next January. Of this amount, $12,500 is designated for contingent faculty in accordance with the wishes of a generous donor. If you are a graduate student or contingent faculty member presenting a paper, organizing a panel, roundtable discussion or workshop, or serving on a SCS committee, and if you will not receive travel funding from your academic institution, you are eligible for these funds.

Graduate students will receive $250 each. Contingent faculty will receive $300 each on the grounds that we do not offer contingent faculty a discounted registration rate. If there are more applicants for stipneds than the available funding can support, SCS will run a lottery to determine who will receive the stipends. If there are fewer applicants than the available funding will support, we will open up the application to graduate students and contingent faculty who are attending the meeting but not presenting, organizing, or serving on a committee.

Graduate students and contingent faculty (i.e. non-tenure-track faculty members) who wish to apply should write the Executive Director (, no later than September 18, 2017 with their name, institutional affiliation, reason for attending the meeting, and mailing address for the Fall. Contingent faculty should also indicate their job title. Notifications will be sent out in late September and the Executive Director will send out stipend checks in early November.
