Note: These awards were formerly titled, "Minority Travel Awards."

This program is designed to broaden participation of those pursuing professional careers in physiological/biomedical sciences. Specifically the program:

  • Provides travel fellowships to underrepresented graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and early career faculty members (within 5 years of obtaining a Ph.D.) to attend the annual spring meeting, Experimental Biology (EB), and APS conferences.
  • EB is a four day meeting attended by approximately 12,000 scientists annually. EB serves as a forum for interactions between physiologists and scientists from other areas of experimental biology.
  • APS meetings are focused on a specific physiology topic and occur in an informal setting, allowing for greater interaction between the students and scientists at the meeting. The meetings range in length from three to five days.
