Lots of scholarship deadlines from various professional organizations are coming up soon! Here’s a list of the ones I know about… do you know about more that are due in the next month or two? Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them to this post.
Normally I include information about travel/conference registration funding in this annual round-up post, and I have done so when it’s clear that these opportunities are available in this time of continuing uncertainty. If you know of additional awards that cover registration/travel for professional conferences, please let me know and I’ll add them.
