Deadline approaching for EMGS Student and New Investigator Travel Awards

As a reminder, the deadline to apply for the EMGS Student and New Investigator Travel Awards is May 1.  

In 2020, EMGS will offer 40 Student and New Investigator Travel Awards to assist students and new investigators to attend and participate in the EMGS Annual Meeting, scheduled for Sept. 12-16 in Palm Springs, Calif. In addition, student from a developing country currently enrolled in a graduate degree program in the USA or Canada is eligible to receive the Alexander Hollaender Travel Award. Applicants must indicate their desire to be considered for this award when they submit their application.

If your institution restricts the receipt of award monies, the most meritorious applications will still receive EMGS recognition without funding, when applicable.Students and New Investigators are the future of our Society. EMGS fosters the career development of students and postdoctoral level investigators, helping them establish the long-term collaborative relationships that will make EMGS their professional home.


Students and new investigators (doctoral degrees within the past five years) are eligible for Travel Awards. The applicant must be a member of EMGS prior to the award application deadline. Membership can be obtained at any time via the EMGS website.

  • A copy of the abstract submitted to the meeting. Your abstract must be submitted via the Abstract Submission Form.
  • A letter of recommendation sent by the applicant’s current mentor.
  • A statement written by the applicant (250 words maximum) describing how the applicant expects to benefit from a travel award to attend the EMGS meeting.
