The grants are only available to a US citizen or permanent resident. The grants will be made available to members who fall under NIH’s Interest in Diversity Notice and are underrepresented within the Society. Through its Innovative Programs to Enhance Research Training (IPERT) grant, ASCB can offer funding to ensure access to the meeting for undergraduate, graduate, postdoc, and junior faculty who identify as underrepresented minorities (see definition below).* Underrepresented minorities in these career stages, as well as junior faculty at primarily undergraduate institutions or faculty at minority serving institutions in the United States can apply for these grants. Since actual travel is not required to attend the meeting, the grants will provide a waiver for registration and abstract fees.

- Deadline for Attendance grant is November 26, 2021.
