The Martin Frank Diversity Travel Award program is intended to provide support to those seeking after proficient professions in physiological sciences. The particular aim of this program is to build active participation in and organizing at specific gatherings among learners and early profession personnel who are from underrepresented groups in the physiological sciences. In particular, the program gives travel grants to an underrepresented diverse group of graduate understudies, postdoctoral colleagues, and early career employees (within five years of getting a Ph.D. degree) to go to the APS yearly gathering at Experimental Biology (EB) and APS meetings. All the Travel Award beneficiaries will get a travel award in addition to tutoring and networking openings during the gathering.
This honor is available to an explicitly underrepresented population characterized by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NIH characterizes underrepresented group status in the Notice of NIH’s Interest in Diversity, which can be found here. Candidates are permitted to get up to two maximum diverse travel grants. Porter Physiology Development Fellows are urged to apply. Fragmented applications won’t be inspected. Candidates are chosen dependent on the candidate’s reasons behind wishing to go to the meeting, CV, and reference letters. The one most deserving candidate will be considered as the final recipient of this scholarship and be awarded the grant of up to $1500 in travel support for EB 2022. In order to be considered for this scholarship, the applicants must submit their entries before December 18, 2021.
