A limited number of Student Merit / Junior Investigator Meeting Awards are provided each year to individuals who are the presenting author of a poster or giving an oral presentation at the Annual Scientific Meeting. Awards are funded by a National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) conference grant. The awards are intended to help defray costs associated with attendance at the Meeting. Awards cover the cost of meeting registration only or meeting registration and a very minimal travel stipend.
An application must be submitted by all individuals who wish to apply. Speaker or Poster abstract (required of applicants) must be submitted by the deadline specified each year. Selection of awardees will be based on the merit of their abstract and stated financial need. Additional consideration will be given for students and junior investigators from under-represented minority groups.
