AChemS Travel Fellowships for Diversity

AChemS is pleased to announce the availability of travel fellowships for under-represented individuals interested in the chemical senses. The fellowships, funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, cover the cost of travel, meals, lodging, and registration to attend the Annual Meeting of AChemS. Members of African-American, Hispanic-American, Native-American, Pacific Islander, or other ethnic or racial groups under-represented in chemosensory research, as well as veterans and those with physical disabilities will be considered.

Applicants need not be AChemS members, but are limited to citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States, or to individuals who have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States (i.e., in possession of an Alien Registration Receipt Card or some other legal evidence of admission for permanent residence at the time of application). Undergraduates, graduate students, post docs, research associates and research assistants are eligible for the fellowship. Awardees will be selected according to their academic background, experience, and research interests.

Applicants are required to submit a complete application, curriculum vitae and two letters of recommendation. Documents are to be uploaded on the application form.

ISOT Application Deadline: February 21, 2020
