SOF Travel Award Applications Due October 1

A maximum of three grants of up to $1,000 each will be awarded for conference-related costs, including travel, housing, and conference registration. A selection committee of five Scripps Research postdocs will review the applications.

Previous award applicants may apply again, but past award winners are ineligible. Eligibility, specific application procedures, and proposal guidelines can be found on the Career and Postdoctoral Services webpage.
