The goal of the Solidarity Award Fund (SAF) is to raise an endowment fund to support scholars to attend AILA meetings (held every three years). These awards are for scholars whose papers are accepted for presentation at the conference, but who are from parts of the world where economies make it difficult, if not prohibitive, for them to travel to the conference. These individuals are the future of our profession and will be the leaders in Applied Linguistics in their countries. The goal of $50,000 for this fundraising campaign would provide funds for this purpose.
