Apply for a Travel Grant to Present in Boston
Dear PCA Community:

The pandemic has definitely changed our lives; we recognize, especially during this unsettling time, that PCA members may need financial assistance in order to attend the 2021 national conference. Please consider applying for an Endowment Grant to supplement travel to Boston.

PCA welcomes scholars from all different backgrounds and stages in their careers; we believe this is what makes our community unique. The following grants reflect this diversity:

Michael Schoenecke Travel Grants for Graduate Students
Peter Rollins Travel Grants for Early Career Faculty
John Bratzel Travel Grants for Associate and Full Professors
Diane Calhoun-French Travel Grants for Faculty at Two-Year Colleges
Michael and Madonna Marsden International Travel Grants

New Travel Grants for 2021
We also want to offer support to those working inside and outside the academy by introducing two new travel grants for the 2021 conference:

The David Feldman Travel Grant for Independent Scholars

The Non-Continuing Faculty Travel Grant.

Please note:
  • You may only apply for one grant
  • Graduate/Undergraduate students are not eligible for the new grants (graduate students can apply for the Michael Schoenecke Grant)
  • The number of grants awarded is at the discretion of the Endowment Committee and the PCA Governing Board
  • The deadline for all grant applications is November 16, 2020
  • Active membership for the 2021 conference year is required to apply

If you have additional grant questions, please contact Dr. Phil Simpson, Endowment Committee Chair, at
