Here are opportunities for funding and travel that you have access to as an ACTOR Student Member:

Student Presentations At ANNual Workshops

Each year, student members in ACTOR will have the opportunity to submit presentation proposals about work they are doing that aligns with the ACTOR mandate.  Four or five students will be selected to present their work at the yearly ACTOR Workshop.  Those students’ travel, lodging, and meals will be fully funded by ACTOR.  Student presenters will also be able to attend the other sessions at the ACTOR workshop and will be asked to serve as note-takers to assist the session chairs in preparing the session summaries.

Application Form

Student Exchange

Student members will be eligible to apply for a student exchange to an ACTOR partner institution other than their home university.  Students can receive up to $2,500 towards their exchange visit and benefit from direct access to resources, facilities, and supervision available only at the host institution they will visit.  This work will enable students to develop real connections within the larger ACTOR community and lay ground work for their future careers.
