FASEB Travel Awards

The FASEB MARC Program provides funding for travel awards to encourage and support the participation of underrepresented students and postdoctoral fellows at scientific meetings and conferences, and the participation of underrepresented PhD/graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty members in leadership development and grantsmanship training seminar programs.  The awards help to defray meeting registration and travel-related expenses (lodging, transportation, per diem) for eligible underrepresented graduate students/postdoctorate scientists in the biomedical and behavioral sciences.

Applicants must be graduate students or postdocs who are also current/active members of SFG.  New members are not eligible.
