Atheist Alliance International 2008 Conference Grant Application

Unsinkable Atheism
"Unsinkable Atheism," the 14th Annual Atheist Alliance International (AAI) Convention, will be held the weekend of September 25-28, 2008 on the beautiful and historic Queen Mary, which is permanently docked in Long Beach, California.

Using the generous contributions of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, we have established a grant fund to help offset the travel costs incurred by students to attend the conference. We are making $100 and $200 travel grants available to interested students (apply now). The convention cost of $70 for students includes a souvenir speakers booklet, Friday-night hors d'oeuvres and a Freethought Concert, admission to exhibition hall, Saturday morning workshops, Saturday afternoon plenary, Saturday Happy Hour with hors d'oeuvres and music, Saturday night plenary with a musical presentation, Sunday Continental Breakfast, Sunday plenary, and Closing Ceremony. You can register online.

To qualify for grant consideration you must be a student member of the SSA (join now). Grant recipients will receive their grant check at the conference.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and we will let applicants know if they receive a grant as soon as possible. The deadline for application for student travel grants is August 22nd, 2008. However, because applications are accepted on a rolling basis, all of the grants may be allocated before August 22nd, 2008. Apply early!
