SUPPORT GRANTS FOR THE ANNUAL CONFERENCECAA offers Annual Conference grants supporting international members, students, emerging scholars, practitioners, and artists. Applicants must be CAA members. Individuals may apply for more than one grant but can only receive a single award.
SUPPORT GRANTS FOR ANNUAL CONFERENCE REGISTRATION
Each year CAA will award a limited number of grants to cover Annual Conference Registration for members in need. When registering for the conference, members have the option to “Pay it Forward,” providing a donation in excess of their registration fees that will go directly to supporting members. Annual Conference registration grants will be supported by funds raised by the Presidents Council of CAA and the “Pay it Forward” initiative.
