APS is offering travel stipends through the Young Investigator Travel Award to help offset costs of attending the 2016 APS Annual Scientific Meeting. A limited number of funding awards will be available to individuals presenting poster abstracts at the meeting, May 11–14 in Austin, TX. Applicants may be from any research training background (basic or clinical science, psychology, medicine, or biostatistics) and at any level in training (students, residents, predoctoral trainees, postdoctoral fellows, and those who have completed their postdoctoral training within the past 3 years). Applicants must be APS members and have an abstract accepted for presentation. Applications from nonmembers will not be considered.
Complete the online application to apply for funding. Note that an applicant’s abstract must be accepted for presentation in order to be eligible for this grant. Poster abstract acceptance letters were sent to primary authors by e-mail in late December, and a listing of accepted abstracts, by primary author, is available on the Poster section of the website. Please check the abstract acceptance list before applying. Applicants also must be current members of APS; please be sure your membership is up to date when completing the grant application. Applications from nonmembers will not be considered.
Applications must be completed online by February 10.
Applications will be reviewed by the APS Scientific Program Committee, and stipends will be awarded in late February. Notifications will be sent to applicants in March. Those applicants selected to receive a 2016 award will receive their travel grants at the annual meeting.
