Conference Travel Awards

When submitting a proposal for an RSVP conference, please indicate if you would like to be considered for one of these travel awards.

For Graduate Students

Our two graduate student travel awards help defray the cost of travel to the RSVP conference. They are named in memory of Barbara Quinn Schmidt and Josef Altholz, who were both pioneers in periodical studies and longtime active members.

For Independent Scholars

The William Scheuerle Travel Award enables independent and retired scholars to attend the RSVP conference. Named in honor of a founding member of RSVP and former editor of VPR, Bill was a steadfast conference attendee from early in his career and throughout his retirement. It gives his RSVP colleagues great pleasure to make this award available.
