APS is offering travel scholarships for the 2017 APS Annual Scientific Meeting through the Young Investigator Travel Award. A limited number of funding awards will be available to individuals presenting poster abstracts at the meeting May 17–20 in Pittsburgh, PA. Applicants may be from any research training background (basic or clinical science, psychology, medicine, or biostatistics) and may be 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 must have an abstract accepted for presentation. Applications from nonmembers will not be considered.

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 2017 award will receive their travel grants at the annual meeting.
