To be eligible for a travel grant from these funds:

*You must be a member of ASA in good standing in the calendar year of the paper presentation and you must register for the meeting.
*Eligible persons include faculty members (including lecturers, adjuncts, and part-timers) and independent scholars.

*Do not include any mention of the Chayes fund in your paper or abstract.
*In the new paper submission system, indicate separately that you wish to be considered for a Chayes travel grant, if your paper is accepted, and explain briefly why you are eligible.
*The program committee will make the final decisions on which persons receive a Chayes travel grant. If more than six persons with accepted papers are eligible, the committee will decide which, based on merit, programmatic, and diversity priorities, should get the award.
