	SMM Biennial Conference Student Travel Grant Applications –
Changed Dates 
	For students planning on attending the upcoming SMM Biennial
Conference in Quebec City in October 2009, please be aware that there
have been some changes to the dates for the student travel grant
applications.  We will now be opening the application for these
travel grants on Monday, June 15th, 2009.  The new closing date for
submission for the student travel grant applications is Sunday, July
12th, 2009.  This closing date is after the announcement of abstract
acceptances is made (July 10th).  Remember, to qualify for this
grant, you need to: 1) make sure you are a current SMM student member
at the time of submission, 2) be currently enrolled as a student at a
recognized academic institution, 3) be first author on an accepted
oral or poster presentation, and 4) register for the conference by
the early registration deadline.  (You are allowed to apply for a
student travel grant before you find out if your abstract is
accepted; I will make sure everyone on the final application list has
an accepted abstract, though, which may require removing some names at
which point you will be notified.)  Notification of the student travel
grant awards will be made no later than Wednesday, July 15th, 2009. 
If you are granted an award, you will need to make sure you register
for the conference by the end of the early registration period (July
20th, 2009 - note that this has changed) or the award will be granted
to someone else.
