ISN 2024 Travel grants for Trainees and Persons from Underrepresented Groups

Funds from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders in the National Institutes of Health allow ISN to offer travel awards to citizens of the USA (or holders of green cards) for attending the annual ISN meeting. Applicants must be either:

2. Prepare a cover letter explaining your reason for requesting a travel award and the relevance of your training or profession to neurogastronomy. In this letter, provide estimates of the following costs: travel, lodging, registration. Trainees should also provide contact information for two persons capable of verifying trainee status.

Review criteria and rules

Only US citizens and holders of green cards are eligible. Awards may be used to cover travel only within North America, lodging, and meeting registration. We strive to cover the full costs of travel and lodging, and in most cases are successful, but award amounts vary and in some cases may cover only part of the costs of attending the meeting. Travel awards may not be used for the ISN Dinner Workshop.
