PSG Travel Fund Donations

Support graduate students and other junior scholars in Philippine Studies by contributing to the PSG Travel Fund! Two ways to donate—by check mailed to our treasurer, Megan Thomas, or by credit card via the AAS website. We successfully gave two travel awards of $200 each during the AAS Conference in Philadelphia and with your support, we hope to be able to expand it next year.

Here’s a link to the donation form with additional details:

Here’s a link to the award description for 2015.

Note: Last year’s Travel Fund committee members have agreed to continue to serve—thanks to Lindy Aquino (chair), Nita Churchill & Megan Thomas (newly elected treasurer). Let’s all help our new country chair/Executive Secretary Richard Chu give more money to our deserving junior colleagues in Chicago. Please forward the donation links to friends of Philippine Studies, the PSG, and all who want to see increased participation of younger scholars in the AAS!

For the benefit of those who are not currently AAS members, Grant Goodman’s obituary appears in the latest AAS Newsletter which now exclusively comes out in electronic form. Norman Owen wrote it on behalf of the PSG, taking up the task of situating Grant’s contributions to Asian Studies in general and Philippine Studies in particular.
