You must provide a justification for your attendance at the annual meeting and a budget of expenses.
Your faculty advisor, who also must be a member of the NACBS, is required to submit a letter of recommendation on your behalf.

Please submit your request for funds by email to each of the committee members under the subject line: Stern Grant Application.  Your request should include the following information: your name, postal address, email address, and telephone number; the Ph.D. program in which you are enrolled; the name of your faculty advisor; your purpose in attending the NACBS meeting; an estimated budget of expenses.

In addition, request that your faculty advisor send a letter of recommendation to the committee by email, again with the subject line: Stern Grant Application.
