Travel Awards for FASEB Science Research Conferences

The FASEB Science Research Conferences (SRC) have been very successful and scientifically important activities of the Federation since 1982. There are approximately forty conferences which meet for five days during the summer period (June-August) on topics in biomedical research.  Emphasis is on the cutting-edge of research, with prominent scientists in each field making presentations to attendees who themselves are heavily engaged in research or ancillary fields where an accurate understanding of allied scientific advances is important.

FASEB MARC Program Travel Awards are available to help defray the cost of conference registration fees and related travel expenses for eligible academic trainees (postdoctoral and advanced graduate students) from groups in the biomedical and behavioral sciences.

Important: All complete travel award application packets must be received by the FASEB MARC Program Office by 5:00 PM (Eastern Time) on the related application receipt deadline date. All late and/or incomplete application packets will be declined upon receipt.

Procedures to Apply

  1. Review Eligibility & Requirements
  2. Register for a FASEB Science Research Conference
  3. Download the Travel Award Application (Please direct questions to the SRC Travel Award Manager)
  4. Review Procedures Upon Notification
  5. Review Rules for Reimbursement

Please note that you can only apply for a travel award AFTER you have received confirmation of your programmed abstract for the selected conference. The number of FASEB SRC Travel Awards is limited; therefore, each underrepresented assistant professor, postdoctoral fellow or advanced graduate student may apply for only one (1) conference per summer period. Preference will be given to first-time/new conference attendees giving oral or poster presentations at the FASEB SRCs. Specify the conference you desire to attend on the application form. Be advised that not all of the FASEB SRCs are eligible for FASEB MARC Travel Awards.

All completed FASEB MARC TRAVEL AWARD APPLICATION packets must be received in the FASEB MARC Program Office at least six weeks prior to the scheduled conference dates.  Upon approval of the FASEB MARC/SRC travel award application, an official travel award letter specifying the details of the travel award will be sent to the awardee at least three weeks prior to the conference.
