Student Travel Funding


For this year's virtual PAA meeting May 5-8, 2021, we are able to provide funds for student members to become members of PAA and register for the conference. We can reimburse all costs if you are on the program and we have limited funds for students who want to attend but are not on the program. If you rolled over your registration from last year to this year you do not have to register again. Please check if you’ve already done this.

Please fill out this googleform by February 28, 2021. Please note that early bird registration ends Sunday February 28, 2021.

Funding is only available to MPC Student Members. How to become an MPC Member.


MPC has limited funds available to support professional development for student members. These requests could include funds to attend workshops, courses, training sessions, or academic conference (not covered by PAA or project-related travel).
