Travel Grant Submission

The meeting organizers, as in previous years, are actively raising funds to provide travel grants for students, post-docs, and others in need of additional support. Special consideration will be given to those scientists who have the longest distance to travel and awards will be higher to cover the cost to attend the meeting. Participants interested in receiving travel grant assistance should submit an abstract no later than Monday, May 29. The Meeting Organizers will determine and distribute travel grants by Tuesday, June 13.

Eligibility Requirements

Travel grant requests will receive consideration based on the following criteria:

  • Only Early-Career Scientists* may submit for funding consideration
  • Award will be based on the score earned by the submitted abstract
  • Early-Career Scientists traveling long distances
  • Financial need of the Early-Career Scientist
  • Under-represented American minority status (as required by NIH grant)
