Travel Grants

Travel grants can be submitted only during the months of February and March.

Starting February 1, 2018 please follow the outlined procedure below: 

  1. Log in to https://economics.ca/cgi/xms with your account number (or e-mail address) and password.

  2. Click on “Conf. Travel Grant” in the main menu.

  3. Select the forthcoming conference year “2018” if not selected automatically.

  4. If the system prompts you to identify your citizenship and student status, please update your “Profile” with the missing information.

  5. If applicable, provide the name and e-mail address of the principal doctoral supervisor.

  6. Upon completion of your travel grant application you will receive an e-mail confirmation.

Our travel grants only cover part of the cost of travel to the conference and successful applicants should still expect to incur some travel costs.  Grant recipients are expected to attend all 3 days of the conference.
The number of CEA travel grants awarded, as well as the amounts awarded, will depend upon the funds available and the number of applicants.  All else being equal, priority for funding will be given to (a) PhD students, (b) those who cannot easily get to the conference by ground transport (car, bus or train), and (c) those who have not received travel grants from the CEA in the past.  The amount awarded to each successful applicant will also depend upon the estimated cost of travelling to the conference location.  For example, a student travelling from Calgary to Vancouver will receive less than a student travelling from Halifax to Vancouver.  
  • Travel grants are only available to qualifying graduate students and doctoral candidates, or junior faculty members at the rank of assistant professor, who are paid-up members of the Canadian Economics Association. 

  • You must be a student or a junior faculty member at a Canadian university, or a Canadian citizen studying or teaching as a junior faculty member at a foreign university.

  • You must have submitted a paper to the conference in order to apply for a travel grant. 

  • Please submit your travel grant application before the deadline of March 31, 2018

Please note that if you are also applying for a travel grant with one of the CEA’s study groups (ie: CWEN, CLEF, CDESG etc.) and end up being eligible for both travel grants you will be offered collaborative grant amount based on a joint assessment by the study group and the CEA.
