About the event
For those speakers who are not affiliated with a college, university, museum or for-profit institution, TransCultural Exchange also offers a limited number of travel grants: Thanks to the generosity of Mrs. Ralph Ghormley, five $800 grants are available to international speakers; and four $250 travel grants, given in memory of TransCultural Exchange’s founding board member Betsy Carpenter, are available to US and/or Canadian presenters. To request such funding, please enclose a statement of need and rationale along with your proposal. Please note that some U.S. states, such as California, offer professional development grants to arts professionals to attend conferences; and that conference costs are often tax-deductible as professional development fees. Please consult your tax adviser for additional information.
