Travel Awards for the Molecular Psychiatry Meeting
If you are interested in applying in the future, eligibility and application requirements are listed below.
**Applications are not currently being accepted. Applications will open in February 2020.**
There are two types of travel awards: (1) one for graduate or medical students who are currently enrolled in PhD, MD, or MD/PhD programs and (2) for postdoctoral fellows/medical residents/junior faculty.
For the postdoc/resident/junior faculty level award, applicants must be within 5 years of completing postdoctoral or residency training. Applicants may have a career development award (K-type) but not yet a R-level grant.
To apply, send your CV or NIH biosketch, a half-page career statement and explanation of why this travel award would be beneficial for you, and one letter of recommendation that also confirms your eligibility (for graduate/medical student award, currently enrolled in PhD, MD, or MD/PhD program; for postdoc/resident/junior faculty award, currently a postdoctoral fellow or resident, or within 5 years of completing training). Preference will be given to those presenting a symposium talk or poster at the meeting.
The deadline for receipt of applications is August 03, 2020. Only young investigators receiving the awards will be notified in mid-September 2020. Awards for both types are for $1,500. Part of the monies must be used to register for the meeting.
