Travel Grants


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. Participants interested in receiving travel grant assistance should submit an abstract no later than August 13, 2010. The Meeting Organizers will determine and distribute travel grants no later than August 24, 2010.

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

  • Score earned by the submitted abstract
  • Student and post-doctoral fellow status
  • Financial need
  • Under-represented American minority status (as required by NIH grant)

To submit your abstract, please go to the Abstracts page.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Any Young Scientists who needs to register prior to the travel grant announcement date of August 24, 2010, will have their registration updated and cost adjusted if awarded a grant.
