BioCreative 2015 travel fellowships

Thanks to a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the US National Institutes of Health, we are able to provide a small number of travel fellowships for US participants in BioCreative 2015. Students, post-doctoral fellows, women, and participants from under-represented minorities are encouraged to apply.
Please note that applying for a fellowship does not guarantee that you will receive funding.


The travel fellowship consists of US$1000 which can be used towards your registration fee and travel costs, including lodging and per diem. You must pay costs up front; fellowship funds will be distributed after attendance at the conference.
