Once again, ECWCA is able to offer five travel awards. The award covers the conference fee as well as a monetary stipend (amount to be determined). These funds are available for individual tutors or groups from the same institution who will be attending the 2019 ECWCA Conference in Dayton, Ohio.

While directors are not eligible to apply for travel awards, groups can include a director if, for example, that person is driving a group of tutors to the conference and will not receive reimbursement. In such a case, the funds could be used to pay for gasoline. The organization gives preference to applications by tutors who are presenting at the conference and from institutions that have not been represented previously at the conference or have not attended in three or more years.

Please do not apply if your institution is covering your costs for the conference or if you plan to attend only one day of the conference. Travel funds will be awarded at the conference luncheon (on Friday) and will not be disbursed if the awardee does not attend.

To apply, fill out the online form by February 1, 2019. If you have further questions about this process, please email the board at .
