Travel Awards for Young Investigators

Travel awards for young, US-based investigators are available to help cover the costs of registration, 5 nights of housing, and partial travel expenses towards airfare. An US National Science Foundation grant will provide $1250 USD and an US Department of Agriculture will provide $1625 USD.




The NSF-funded award is open to students and postdocs and the USDA-funded award to students, postdocs, and assistant professors. For both awards, awardees are not required to be U.S. citizens, but must be studying or employed in the USA. Applications from women and other under-represented groups are encouraged. Students and postdocs will be considered for either award.
