A limited number of travel awards are available for attendance at the 24th American Peptide Symposium. The Travel Award Committee's mission is to administer financial support to offset a portion of registration fees, travel and housing expenses in order to provide a broad opportunity for young investigators to participate in a major scientific event, meet leaders and colleagues in the field, and present their research projects to the scientific community.
In most instances awards will be granted to cover registration fees and/or lodging expenses at the Hyatt Grand Cypress Hotel in Orlando. If funds are available to cover all or a portion of airfare for travel to the meeting, these expenses will be reimbursed after the Symposium and only after documentation of expenses incurred has been submitted.
Awards will only be given to applicants who have submitted an abstract to present at the Symposium (oral or poster) and awards will be subject to approval by the Program Committee. Travel grants are restricted to young investigators (graduate and postdoctoral researchers) within 3 years of completion of Ph.D. Individual supplements may vary. Applicants are required to attend the entire meeting.
