2015 Schlegel Travel Grant Recipients, CDI Staff, and AU Alums
The Center for Diversity & Inclusion recognizes the considerable benefit that students can gain from attending and presenting at national conferences. This travel grant is intended to provide opportunities for students to become familiar with and take part in the life of their academic professions by attending the National LGBTQ Task Force Annual Creating Change Conference from Thursday, January 19th - Sunday, January 22nd, 2017.
The grants can be used for air travel to the conference; base hotel charge (student will be responsible for meals and any extra charges on the hotel bill); and conference registration fee. Funding will include conference registration and partial costs of hotel/travel. Grant recipients are encouraged to seek additional funding from their academic department or from other funding sources. Once back from the conference, grant recipients must work together to do a public presentation/event for the AU community, which could include submitting a proposal to the DC LGBTQ Student Conference that takes place each November.
For questions concerning the travel grant, please contact the Center for Diversity & Inclusion at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-885-3651.
The Schlegel Student Travel Grant is funded through the Richard L. Schlegel National Legion of Honor Endowment. This travel grant embodies the spirit of the Richard L. Schlegel National Legion of Honor Award as Creating Change gives participants the opportunities to build & hone skills, meet leaders & build community, and gain an understanding of current issues in the LGBTQ movement. As the Richard L. Schlegel National Legion of Honor Award recognizes individuals who have exhibited leadership and contributed to the dignity and freedom of LGBTQ people, funding students to attend this conference helps build the future leaders of this movement.
