Student Travel Grants

A limited number of travel grants are available for students planning to attend the Science Policy Conference. This program provides financial assistance to U.S. and international young scientists and students who have little or no support from research contracts or grants.  Students do not need to be presenting or submit an abstract to apply for a grant, but preference will be given to first authors who submit abstracts.   There are two types of travel grants offered to students:

General Student Travel Grant:  All students may apply, but preference will be given to students from races, countries, and genders which are underrepresented in the sciences.

Lloyd V. Berkner Travel Fellowship:  Early career scientists and students under 35 years of age who are residents of countries designated by the World Bank as “low” or “lower-middle”  income per capita.  To see a full listing of Berkner eligible countries, please click here.
