We are proud to announce the 2024 ISBRA Diversity/Underrepresented ISBRA Trainees/Students (UNIT) Award application for the 2024 ISBRA/APSAAR Congress. If you are eligible or know of someone who would be eligible for the Award, please forward this information to him/her. Recipients must be an ISBRA member. If you are not currently an ISBRA member, your membership application must be received by January 1, 2024.
This award is aimed at supporting underrepresented trainees/students working in alcohol research to provide fair opportunity for members from developing countries. The purpose is to encourage trainees/students from underrepresented communities to disseminate their research at an international congress and help them network with principal investigators, collaborators, and institutions on biomedical alcohol research.
The award will consist of a waiver for the congress registration fees and up to US$2000 to support travel/accommodation. Specifically, these funds will be used to promote the participation of trainees/students belonging to underrepresented groups at the biennial ISBRA meeting and to create a grant program to partially cover the expenses associated with a visit to a lab of choice (from a list of available labs) in the metropolitan area of the congress for a week, before or after the meeting.
The fund has been seeded by an initial contribution of US$500 from ISBRA funds, and donations are most welcome (https://isbra.com/donate/). This program will only be possible with your help!
The ISBRA Diversity Award Application for ISBRA members involves the following:
