Starting with a generous contribution from William K. Hartmann, followed by member contributions and matching funds from the DPS Committee, a limited number of student travel grants are made available to assist toward participating at the annual DPS meeting. Travel grants are primarily intended for students, but post-doctoral scientists without other means of support will also be considered. Travel grants for the Nantes meeting will be no more than approximately five hundred dollars and are intended to provide a supplement that makes the difference on whether or not a student is able to attend the annual meeting. In some cases the travel grant may be requested to cover the meeting registration fee. Preference is given to students who have not received a Travel Grant in the past.
Because of the joint meeting there will be several changes to the DPS travel grant program for this meeting only:
- DPS travel grants will be limited to students or post-docs attending US institutions only. We have a reciprocal agreement with the EPSC that they will fund European (and other foreign) students.
- The deadline for applications will be will be very early this year. Application deadline is 9:00 PM PDT, Friday May 20, 2011. Late applications cannot be accepted. All notifications will be made on or before June 3, 2011.
Please see the Hartmann Travel Grant page at the DPS web site for detailed information on submittal and format.
