The Society for Social Work and Research (SSWR) Doctoral Student Travel Award Program is now accepting applications for the 2019 Annual Conference, January 16 – January 20, 2019, in San Francisco, CA.  Applications are due Monday, October 29, 2018 (11:59 PM Eastern).

Program Purpose: The SSWR Doctoral Student Travel Award Program is designed to increase the diversity of doctoral student presenters from underrepresented groups by assisting in their ability to attend and present their work at the SSWR Annual Conference with a travel stipend and a complimentary conference registration.
