MPSA will provide a grant of $500 for members to go to Washington, DC to participate in COSSA's 2019 Social Science Advocacy Day. Those selected as grant recipients are responsible for their own travel, lodging, meeting registration, and incidentals. 

The tentative schedule (subject to change) for the event is:

APRIL 30, 2019
2:00-5:00 pm Welcome, Keynote, and Training
5:00-7:00 pm Rooftop Reception, COSSA Distinguished Service Award Presentation

MAY 1, 2019
8:30-9:30 am Breakfast and Group meet up (receive any changes to meeting schedules and ask last minute questions)
10:00 am-5:00 pm Hill Meetings

In order to receive the advocacy day travel grant, attendees must be U.S. citizens and submit a Hill visit feedback sheet to MPSA in addition to any requirements from COSSA. Failure to show proof of Hill visits will prevent the disbursement of grant monies. The deadline for applications is April 8, 2019.
