2014 Travel Award Application Now Available

We welcome dues-paying members of the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN) to sponsor nominees for a FUN Undergraduate Student Travel Award.  The award offers aid for expenses associated with attending the Society for Neuroscience 2014 meeting for an undergraduate student who is presenting a poster at the main SfN meeting. All student award 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 research results from studies conducted 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.


A panel of FUN members judges the award applications.  The judging criteria focus on the student’s contribution to the project, the importance and originality of the project, and the candidate’s potential in science.  Preference is given to students who are first author on the abstract. 


The student’s sponsor must submit an email containing this document as an attachment to Dr. Lisa Gabel ([email protected]) by Friday, May 16, 2014.  When submitting the application, please put “FUN Travel Award” in the subject line.


Please address any questions or concerns to:
