Travel Awards

The Society for the Neurobiology of Language (SNL) will award twelve Travel Awards to help cover travel and registration costs for the 5th Annual Neurobiology of Language Conference. In 2011, the Travel Awards were funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Communication Disorders (NIDCD).  This year, the awards will be funded in part by the National Institutes of  Health (NIH).

Through the travel awards, SNL aims to encourage and foster the participation of junior scientists who are members of underrepresented groups as defined by the National Institutes of  Health.  To this end, each award will cover the cost of registration as well as provide $550 toward the cost of travel to the meeting.

Eligibilty:  All Graduate students and postdocs are eligible to apply (some travel awards will be awarded to first authors on submitted abstracts; and some travel awards will be given to people who did not submit an abstract to the meeting).

Application Process:  To apply, please submit the following materials:  your CV, a brief personal statement that outlines why you deserve the award, and a statement as to whether or not you fall into one of the underrepresented groups as defined by the National Institutes of Health. Applications should be sent to gro.g1414784608nalor1414784608uen@s1414784608drawa1414784608.
