SFN Travel Grant

Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Trainees:

The Dallas Area Neuroscience Group (www.sfndang.org) is pleased to participate once again in the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) Graduate Student Travel Award Program.

The program provides a travel stipend to the SfN annual meeting to a graduate student nominee selected by our chapter. If you would like to be considered, please e-mail your annual meeting abstract to info@sfndang.org before 5pm May 20th 2009.
For eligibility requirements, please see the SfN website:

If you are a postdoctoral trainee and you would like to be considered
for a Postdoctoral Travel Award,please send us your SfN annual
meeting abstract to info@sfndang.org. For further details please see:
http://web.sfn.org/index.cfm?pagename=TravelAwards_postdoctravel

The names of the author and institution will be stripped off the abstract before submission to an independent judge. The abstract selected by the independent judge will be nominated by our chapter to vie for the award amongst other nominees from other
chapters in the nation. In the previous occasions that we nominated a
student, our students won the travel award.

If your abstract is selected, we will be contacting you immediately
for these digital documents:
• Completed nomination form
• Copy of the abstract submitted for the annual meeting
• A one-page curriculum vitae from the nominee including the
following information: education, including the date at which nominee
advanced to candidacy for the PhD, honors/awards, publications
(abstracts and manuscripts)
• A one-page letter of recommendation from the advisor

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at jaymemcreynolds@gmail.com

If you share an interest in growing in neuroscience by using SfN grant funds to meet eminent scientists, discuss neuroscience books or initiate newer ideas for academic growth, feel free to join our group. Members can vote to guide the group and choose to become an officer too.
