IUPS Travel Award Program to facilitate travel to IUPS-2017

IUPS Travel Award Program to facilitate travel to IUPS-2017

UPDATE: Travel Award winners have been announced HERE

IUPS is seeking applications for travel awards for the International Congress of Physiological Sciences in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, taking place between August 1 and 5, 2017 (IUPS-2017). Information about the Congress is available at: http://iups2017.com/. An Awards Committee will review the applications and select the ones chosen for travel awards. The amount of support will be up to a maximum of $1,000 to assist with travel expenses to Brazil. At the Congress, the IUPS will pay the travel awards by checks made out in United States Dollars, provided that appropriate travel receipts are presented.

The Travel Awards are intended for those whose funds for attending IUPS-2017 are limited. Applications from early-career investigators (graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty/researchers) and those from countries with relatively low GDPs (as listed by the World Bank) are strongly encouraged. It is anticipated that more applications will be received than can be funded. Notification of awards will be made in late spring, prior to IUPS-2017.

Applicants must note that a Travel Award is conditional on the presentation of an abstract at the meeting. The deadline for abstract submissions is May 11, 2017 (see http://iups2017.com/?page_id=314).

Preference will be given to those participating most actively in IUPS-2017. The deadline for submissions of applications for travel awards is May 11, 2017. Submit all Travel Award applications to the IUPS Manager at Steven.Webster@case.edu.
