Shirley Chan Student Travel Grants

APS March Meeting 2017

The Division of Biological Physics will award several travel grants of up to $400 per student as the first author of contributed papers (talks or posters) in sessions sponsored by DBIO at the March Meeting. Applicants will be chosen on the basis of the quality of their work as evidenced by the abstract of the paper, a letter of support from their thesis advisor and the travel distances.

Both student and advisor, domestic or foreign, must be members of the DBIO, not just of the APS. New members can sign up and are encouraged to do so before November 6th for verification purposes.

Use an application from one of the two links below (pdf or MS Word). No more than 2 students from one advisor may apply. If successful, an awardee must furnish a social security number (or equivalent) for tax purposes. A signed supporting letter from the student’s mentor must be copied into the application form. For the MS Word application, this can be done by scanning the signed letter, saving it as a jpeg picture and pasting into the Word document. For the pdf form, the scanned letter should be saved as a pdf file and attached to the pdf form. (Adobe Acrobat full version needed.) In extreme circumstances, include the letter as a second attachment to your email.

Application Form: PDF or MS Word

Submit all application forms, as attachments, via email to the Secretary-Treasurer, Vernita Gordon, (Only applications with all required information included in ONE EMAIL will be considered. Incomplete applications will be returned for resubmission in entirety.) Please personalize the subject of the application email by “DBIO-STG 2017, From (last name).” The DEADLINE is December 1, 2016 — same as abstract deadline. Decisions for the awards will be sent by email to the applicants before the Meeting with instructions on how to receive reimbursement checks.
