2013 Brain Awareness Travel Award
Sponsored by the Society for Neuroscience
We welcome dues-paying members of the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN) to sponsor nominees for the Brain Awareness (BA) Travel Award Program. The award offers aid for expenses ($750 + complimentary registration for the meeting) associated with attending the Society for Neuroscience 2013 meeting for an undergraduate student who is presenting a poster in Theme H: History, Teaching, Public Awareness, and Societal Impacts in Neuroscience. All student travel award applications must have a faculty sponsor who is a dues-paying member of FUN.
The student should be an author on the abstract and present the results from a BA project that was done while an undergraduate. It is not necessary that the student be enrolled as an undergraduate at the time of the SfN fall meeting. Students are eligible if the work was done as a graduating senior the previous year. In order to receive the award, the student will be required to attend the SfN Brain Awareness Event and the FUN Poster Session and Social.
A panel of FUN members and members of SfN’s Public Education and Communication Committee will judge the award applications. The following criteria will be used to evaluate the applications:
The student’s sponsor must submit an email containing a PDF attachment of the award application to Noah Sandstrom, President of FUN (Noah.Sandstrom@williams.edu) by June 10, 2013. Note that abstracts submitted to the Theme H poster session are due to SfN by Thursday, May 9th.
Questions/concerns should be addressed to:
