Criteria for Pacific Circle Travel Subsidies for ICHST in Prague, 2021

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The following criteria will be followed for reimbursements of up to US $500 per member for the 2021 ICHST in Prague. [see previous blog post for further details]

  1. Applicant must be presenting a paper and provide evidence that the paper has been accepted.
  2. Preference for graduate students and early-career researchers and profs.
  3. Preference given to applicants based in and around the Pacific, including East Asia, Southeast Asia, Latin America and Oceania.
  4. The subsidy will be in the form of a check drawn as reimbursement from the Pacific Circle’s account with the University of Hawaii Foundation. That means there will be a series of forms to complete and verification of expense is required. For flights, for example, the Foundation requires the invoice and the boarding passes.
  5. Please do not use this as a substitute for other funding which is available to applicants, as our treasure chest is relatively small.

Requests and verifications can be sent to Prof. Peter Hoffenberg ( with a copy sent to Prof. Warwick Anderson, Circle President.
