Hagen Family Foundation Travel Award

Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 Hagen Family Foundation Travel Award. An award of up to $1,500 will be granted to a doctoral student or faculty member who attends and presents a paper at the 2020 ARIA Annual Meeting as part of the 4th World Risk and Insurance Economics Congress in New York City from August 2-6, 2020. The objective of the award is “to extend the opportunity to attend the ARIA Annual Meeting to those who would not otherwise attend, yet would benefit from the interaction with their peers.”

Eligibility

To be eligible for a travel award, an applicant must:

  • be a Ph.D. student or faculty member from a U.S. or foreign university
  • have a research paper accepted for presentation at the 4th World Risk and Insurance Economics Congress
  • explain their funding situation for the purpose of attending the 4th World Risk and Insurance Economics Congress

Applications can be submitted now, prior to applicants learning about their paper’s acceptance status. The deadline for submission is March 22, 2020. Priority will be given to applicants who lack funding from their institution for the purpose of attending the 4th World Risk and Insurance Economics Congress and who have not received this award in the previous three years. If more than one paper is eligible for consideration, the selection decision will be based on the academic merits of the paper. Decisions will be communicated via email no later than May 31, 2019, possibly earlier.

To apply for the award, applicants must submit a completed application form, a curriculum vita and their paper that is being reviewed for the 2020 ARIA Annual Meeting as part of the 4th World Risk and Insurance Economics Congress to the Committee Chair for the Hagen Family Foundation Travel Award per email:
