Travel Awards

Travel awards are presented each year to provide partial financial support to students and scientists from USA, Canada and other countries to attend and present at the annual meeting. Travel awards are competitive and applicants must adhere to PSG’s application requirements. There are three travel award categories: US/Canada Students, Non-US/Canada Students, and non-US/Canada Scientists. More information on how to apply for the awards can be found in the PSG Handbook and Annual Meeting page. Funds to support the student travel awards are raised primarily from the annual Silent Auction and from donations – please donate here!  Funds to support the scientist travel awards are raised primarily through donations.
