NPA Annual Meeting

Modified: October 19, 2015

Call for Applications for the 14th National Postdoctoral Association Annual Meeting Now Open

The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) is pleased to offer childcare and travel awards for postdoctoral scholars to attend our 14th Annual Meeting, which will be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan from March 4-6th.

The childcare awards will be used to cover childcare expenses while attending the Annual Meeting up to the limit of the award. Award amounts will vary, but the maximum amount awarded will be $500. You may also apply for the travel award in addition to the childcare award. If you receive both awards, the maximum amount awarded will be $1000.

The travel awards will first cover registration and lodging and then travel expenses up to the limit of the award. Award amounts will vary, but the maximum amount awarded will be $1,000. You may also apply for the childcare support award in addition to the travel award. If you receive both awards, the maximum amount awarded will be $1,000.

Awards will be competitively allocated and limited to one per institution. The number of awards granted will depend on the estimated cost of each application, and the amount of funds raised by the NPA. Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek matching funds from their institutions and to include that information in their applications.

Applications will be accepted through November 6th at 1059pm CT.
