Welcome to the travel award application process for the 2017 Emerging Researchers National (ERN) Conference in STEM. The ERN Conference will be in Washington, DC., on March 2-4, 2017.
A limited number of travel awards are available for graduate students who are selected to present oral presentations and undergraduate students who are selected for poster or oral presentations at the ERN Conference. Please check with your advisor to determine if you should apply for a travel award.
The ERN Travel Award will cover the conference registration fee, housing, airfare, and ground transportation. For travel award recipients, AAAS staff will process the conference registration and make the hotel arrangements.
All applications will be reviewed and evaluated by the following criteria: (1) academic achievement and (2) STEM career interest. For award finalists, we will contact faculty mentors to verify student GPAs and for an explanation of why travel support cannot be paid from their NSF grant or other sources.
The Travel Award Application Deadline is Friday, October 14th at midnight (PST).
