Student Travel Awards

Deadline: 17 April 2009

Marcia Brady Tucker Travel Awards can be made to students or recent postdocs who are AOU members and who are sole authors or joint authors of papers; in the case of joint authorship, the student must present the poster or oral paper.

In addition to award application materials described below, students must also submit standard abstract materials to the Program Coordinator by the 17 May 2009 deadline to receive a place on the program.

Note: The purpose of the advanced deadline for the Awards application is to allow the selection committee to inform applicants of funding decisions about Travel Awards before the deadline for early registration and program abstracts.
