RNA2018: Travel award application


We are pleased to announce that travel awards to our annual meeting are once again available.

The RNA Society provides travel fellowships in support of researchers who are constrained financially from attending our conference. In most cases, the fellowships will be made in the form of reduced or waived registration fees, although it is possible that some contribution toward travel costs could be made in addition to the fee waiver. Travel reimbursement, if awarded, will be presented in the form of a check that you pick up with your conference materials, or as a credit card reimbursement or an electronic funds transfer from the RNA Society shortly after the close of the conference.

Please note:

  • Fellowships are restricted to RNA Society members. To become a member, go to the website. To renew your membership, log in at the website.
  • Abstracts submitted with this travel fellowship application will NOT be entered into the conference registration system. You will need to make a separate conference registration, followed by a separate abstract submission once you have registered for the conference.
  • The application for travel fellowships should be submitted by February 26, 2018 for those who want to be notified in time to make the orals application deadline or want to be considered in the first round of funding. We will continue to accept applications after this date, until March 13th, but available funds are likely to be diminished substantially in a second round.
