Young Investigator Travel Fellowship Awards
A limited number of travel fellowships will be available to graduate and medical students, postdoctoral fellows, and physicians in training. Only those applicants who submit abstracts will be considered for an award, which is intended to offset some of the expenses incurred by the recipient in connection with attending the symposium.
Anyone wishing to apply for a travel fellowship should check the appropriate box on the registration form and attach a letter of recommendation. This letter should be on official letterhead, be signed by the dean or department head, and contain the following information about the applicant (due by August 1, 2014):
1. academic status
2. research activities in the subject area of the meeting
3. citations of recent articles in this subject area published in peer-reviewed journals
