|Call for Applications for the 15th Annual Meeting Travel Awards|
The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) is pleased to offer travel awards for postdoctoral scholars to attend our 15th Annual Meeting, which will be held at the Fairmont Hotel, San Francisco, California, March 17 - 19, 2017. The awards will first cover registration and lodging, and then travel expenses up to the limit of the award. Travel award amounts will vary, but the maximum amount awarded will be $1,000. You may also apply for the childcare support award in addition to the travel award. If you receive both awards, the maximum amount awarded will be $1000 total.
Awards will be competitively allocated and limited to one per institution. The number of awards granted will depend on the estimated cost of each application, and the amount of funds raised by the NPA.
