Wonderful news: I am now collecting names for the BISC grad caucus travel award lottery. If you are interested in entering the draw, please send me an email to that effect. Just your name is fine; we don't need to know what conference, etc. You are eligible if you have attended or plan to attend a conference between Sept. 1, 2008 and Aug 31, 2009.
There are six awards, each worth $100, and winners are determined by a random draw from a hat. We will draw names at the next caucus meeting, which will be on November 28.
Make sure to keep your receipts from conferences that you attend, even if you don't win an award this round, as we may have additional funds to hand out come summer.
So, send me an email sometime in the next 2 weeks if you are interested, and feel free to email me if you have any questions.
