Travel Grants



Financial hardship should never stand in the way of achieving a dream. Student chapters and student interest groups can apply for assistance to support their members to attend the annual MAES Symposium. MAES Student Chapter Travel Grants are available to all registered student chapters and recognized student interest groups. The grant partially covers the cost of transportation to attend the annual Symposium.

MAES needs your help to enable career access for its students.
