Travel Fellowship Awards

In an effort to support research of early career faculty and trainees, the ANA has allocated up to $80,000 in Travel Awards to assist in covering expenses for presenting authors. The quality of the abstract will be considered, as well as the applicant’s potential to enter an investigative field of neuroscience. 

To be eligible for an award, an invididual must:
  • Be the presenting author on a submitted abstract; and
  • Be a trainee (student, resident or fellow) or junior faculty (instructor or assistant professor).

If bestowed a travel award, the receipient must provide a letter from the research mentor / division head / chair that attests to involvement in the project.

Please note: Works in Progress abstracts will NOT be considered for travel awards.

Awardees will be selected from the pool of eligible applicants based upon the abstract's degree of excellence as determined by the Scientific Program Advisory Committee. In 2016, the ANA awarded more than $60,000 in travel awards to 100 medical students, residents and graduate fellows to present research at the ANA annual meeting.
