The ISA provides a small amount of scholarship money to attend our conferences.  

Typically, these cover registration fees, though applicants need to be members of the ISA and the RC to apply.  We also try to arrange low-cost housing for those who need it.

We particularly encourage graduate students and younger scholars to join our Research Committee. Attending our conferences is the best way to meet colleagues from around the world.
