Application Information

The specific intent of the APS Minority Travel Fellowship is to increase active participation in and networking at scientific meetings among trainees and early career faculty who are from groups underrepresented in the physiological sciences. The definitions for the groups that the NIH considers to be in need of a special recruitment and retention plan in order to diversify the biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences workforce ethnic and racial categories come from the "Recruitment and Retention Plan to Enhance Diversity" (last revised in November 2009), which can also be found at the bottom of the page under Resources.

The APS Minority Travel Fellowship Awards are open to:

  • underrepresented minority (URM) graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career faculty (recently transitioned; within 5 years of receiving a PhD); and
  • graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career faculty (recently transitioned; within 5 years of receiving a PhD) with disabilities.

Applicants must be attending U.S. institutions and conducting research within the 50 States and U.S. Territories. Porter Physiology Development Fellows are encouraged to apply. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

Travel Fellows will receive up to $1,800 in expense reimbursement for registration, housing, meals, air and ground transportation, and tips. These awards do not provide funds for international travel.
