Student Travel Grants

Travel Grant Fund

The OSA Foundation is proud to offer over 25 travel grants a year to students in developing nations interested in attending an OSA technical meeting. In the last decade we have awarded 245 grants to students in 38 countries.  With your support, we can increase the number of grants offered annually. 

Donate to the Fund

When you contribute to the Student Travel Grant Fund, you support the education and professional development of a future scientific innovator.

All contributions are matched 100% by OSA with a donation to the Foundation's General Fund.
