2) name of your Sigma Delta Pi chapter and college/university
3) name of your chapter adviser

A student whose paper is selected for presentation will receive a $600 travel stipend plus paid conference registration courtesy of Sigma Delta Pi and complimentary student membership in AATSP courtesy of the AATSP (American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese).  However, the same student is expected to secure travel-related funding for all remaining expenses through their college/university, either via the academic departments, the dean’s or provost’s office, the office of student activities, or other institutional sources.   Colleges/universities often provide funding for students presenting at conferences.  Your chapter adviser can assist you with exploring these funding options.  Sigma Delta Pi is unable to provide monetary support beyond the $600 travel stipend and conference registration per selected student.
