Individual Prizes and Fellowships

Chapter Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Fellow Travel Awards

Chapter Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Fellow Travel Awards enable outstanding graduate students and postdoctoral fellows nominated by their local SfN chapter to attend the SfN annual meeting. The awards provide complimentary registration and a stipend to help defray travel expenses.

Recipients must attend a special reception held in their honor at the SfN annual meeting. Award checks (honorarium check made out to recipient) will be given to recipients at the meeting. Recipients receive a special ribbon to attach to their annual meeting badge, designating them as recipients of the SfN Chapters Graduate Student or Postdoctoral Fellow Travel Award.

Note: Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who plan to attend the SfN annual meeting and are nominated for this award should not register for the conference until they receive notification regarding the status of the nomination. Notification will be given prior to the deadline for early conference registration.

If you wish to apply for travel funds but do not have a local chapter, you may be eligible for another of SfN's numerous travel award programs.
