SSAWW 2018 Triennial Conference Graduate Student Service Opportunity (Registration Waiver)

The Society for the Study of American Women Writers (SSAWW) is pleased to support graduate students with registration waivers in exchange for four hours of service at the registration desk or monitoring the art exhibition room at the 2018 triennial conference.

In order to apply, your membership with SSAWW must be current and you must be presenting on a panel or roundtable at the conference. The SSAWW Executive Committee asks that those fortunate enough to have full financial support from their home institutions decline the reimbursement (please let us know as soon as possible after applying if you fall into this category).

To apply, please send the following information via E-mail to Christopher Varlack, the program director for the 2018 triennial conference, at ssaww.vpdevelopment@gmail.com:

Applications must be received no later than June 15, 2018. Receipt of applications will be acknowledged via E-mail. Please note, however, that late applications cannot be considered. Those accepted will be notified by June 22, 2018.

Those who apply and are accepted for one of these service positions must still register for the conference but are not required to pay the associated registration fees. For those who have already paid, those funds will be refunded via PayPal.
