Travel Grants Available

Travel grants of $150 each (or $50 for students who live in the Los Angeles area) are available for students who present papers or posters at the Long Beach Meeting. You do not have to be entered in the paper/poster competition to be eligible for a travel grant. Presenting a paper is enjoyable, academically stimulating, and students can receive valuable feedback on their research. Travel grants are designed to encourage student participation by helping with some of the costs. Grants will be made on a random drawing of all applications received by September 15, 2007, up to a limit of $3,000.
