ABRF2018 Travel awards

NERLSCD sponsored


Travel   Awards

The Northeast Regional Life Sciences Core Directors (NERLSCD) will sponsor  Travel Awards for 2 NERLSCD members to attend the ABRF Annual meeting April 21-25, Myrtle Beach, SC.  The goal of this award program is to provide core personnel from the Northeast regional chapter with funds to help them attend the ABRF annual meeting. Each award consists of $1000 toward any combination of registration and lodging/travel expenses. Most meals are provided during the meeting.

Eligibility requirements: Applicants must be currently employed in a core facility or officially associated with core facilities (e.g., as a core facility center administrator) at an academic or non-profit institution that is located in the focus region of the NERLSCD ABRF Chapter (i.e., the Northeast region of the USA, including the states of ME, MA, NH, CT, RI, VT, NY, NJ, PA, and DE and neighboring Canadian provinces). Preference will be given to applicants who will be new NERLSCD annual meeting attendees, especially those from an institution that has not had a prior presence at an ABRF meeting and to applicants who will be poster presenters at the ABRF 2018 meeting.

Qualifying expenses: Each travel award will be for $1000 to help cover registration, and travel and hotel costs associated with attending the ABRF 2018 meeting. 

Deadline for application submission: February 14, 2018

Award notification date: Awards will be announced and successful applicants will be notified by February 28, 2018.

Any interested individual should submit an application form using the NERLSCD ABRF 2018 Travel Award Application.   Encourage someone who has never attended ABRF to apply!
