Travel Grants

Travel Grants are available to Society members to support travel expenses to the annual meeting. Registration and the submission of a scientifically relevant abstract are required. The program is need-based and is intended for members who require additional funding to attend the meeting regardless of career level. Individuals may request a travel grant and also apply for one of the various merit-based awards in the same cycle. The number and value of grants provided annually will vary depending upon the number of applicants and the allocated budget as approved by the Council. Grant support is not guaranteed; the Award Committee will consider requests and ensure equitable distribution of available travel grant funds. Grantees must attend the entire meeting in order to receive allocated funds. Upon submission of travel receipts, the individual will receive reimbursement up to the grant value. Local attendees (within 100 miles of meeting venue) may apply for travel grants with reduced stipends as decided by the Award Committee. Only members truly requiring travel support are asked to apply in order to ensure funds are equitably distributed based on need.

Please refer to the application instructions and abstract system for specific application requirements.
