TAA Conference travel grant

2024 TAA Conference Travel Grant Program

TAA is excited to announce a travel grant to attend the 2024 TAA Conference on Textbook & Academic Authoring, June 21-22, in Nashville, TN. The goal of the travel grant is to provide all members with the chance to gain valuable education while making meaningful connections at our conference.

As part of our commitment to removing barriers to attendance, we will be awarding a limited number of grants to cover conference registration and some travel costs for members in need.
