USNC Funding

USNC Travel Funding | ICA scholarships | International Cartographic Exhibition | Children’s Map Competition | U.S. National Report | ICA General Assembly | USNC Members

The USNC is offering funds to help American and international scholars and professionals at institutions, agencies, and companies in the U.S. to participate in ICC 2023. Support is available for early-career scholars (ECSs; students and those completing their degrees within the previous five years) and non-ECSs. At this time, it is unknown how the conference will support virtual participation. Details will be provided as soon as they are available.

Funding is contingent upon acceptance of abstracts/papers by the ICC organizing committee. Notification of USNC funding is therefore made after the abstract/paper acceptance for the ICC has been announced.

ECS Applicants

Funding for ECSs is provided through a grant by the National Science Foundation. For submissions by ECSs, single-authored abstracts are given preference. Support is based on an evaluation of submitted materials, including:

  • A copy of the abstract that is also submitted for the ICC
  • A 1-page curriculum vitae clearly indicating the date and type of last degree earned
Non-ECS Applicants

Support for non-ECSs is provided by CaGIS for its society members. The number of non-ECSs supported and the amount of support is contingent upon available funds. Support is based on a competitive evaluation of submitted materials, including:

  • the date and type of last degree earned

Submission of Travel Funding Applications Include the ICC abstract and short vitae, in that order, in a single PDF or Word document titled “Lastname ICC Abstract.pdf” (or .doc or .docx), where “Lastname” is the last name of the first author. Only one abstract per author will be considered, including co-authorship. Please send the abstract/vitae document to the USNC Chair, Aileen Buckley, by 12 December 2022.
