Best Benefit Ever: Travel Awards for Conference Attendees

By / Nov 15, 2013 (iStock/Thinkstock)

The Society for Neuroscience gives members the perk of travel awards before they hit the road.

Part of the Society for Neuroscience’s mission is to bring together neuroscientists of “diverse backgrounds” and “at all stages of their careers.” Toward that goal, SfN offers travel awards to help potential attendees pay their way to its annual meeting and other events.

SfN grants about 70 awards each year worth more than $100,000 total, assisting students, postdoctoral fellows, international delegates, and even science-journalism­ students to gain valuable face-to-face interaction with the neuroscience community.
