EMGS Student and New Investigator Travel Awards

   

Students and New Investigators are the future. EMGS strives to help students and postdoctoral level investigators to establish long-term relationships that will promote career development. The EMGS offers a limited number of Student and New Investigator Travel Awards to assist students and new investigators to attend and participate in the EMGS Annual Meeting. Applications for Travel Awards are solicited from graduate students and new investigators during the abstract submission process.

Students, postdocs and faculty are also eligible to apply for FASEB/MARC travel grants to attend the EMGS Annual Meeting. Students and New Investigators are the future of our Society.
