Travel Fellowships

RNA 2016 Travel Award Application

The RNA Society provides travel fellowships in support of researchers who are constrained financially from attending our conference. This year we have budgeted $60,000 for this purpose, but we are soliciting additional support from corporate sponsors as well, so more funds may be available later. In most cases the fellowships will be made in the form of reduced or waived registration fees, although it is possible that some contribution toward travel costs could be made in addition to the fee waiver. Travel reimbursement, if awarded, will be presented in the form of a check that you pick up with your conference materials, or as a credit card reimbursement or an electronic funds transfer from the RNA Society shortly after the close of the conference.

Please note:

  • Fellowships are restricted to RNA Society members.

  • Abstracts submitted with this travel fellowship application will NOT be entered into the conference registration system. You will need to make a separate conference registration, followed by a separate abstract submission once you have registered for the conference.
  • If you plan to apply for the RNA Society Scaringe Award, you can do that in addition to applying for this fellowship. You will only be able to receive one, but we can easily cancel this fellowship if you receive the other award.
  • The application for travel fellowships should be submitted by March 5, 2016 for those who want to be notified in time to make the orals application deadline, but we will continue to accept applications after this date.

Questions can be addressed to travel[A]rnasociety[D]org (Please change [A] to @, [D] to .).
