Apply for a Travel award to present at the NIH sponsored Early Career Investigators Poster session, APA 2024

News Date: Wednesday, April 17, 2024 - 10:45

Graduate Students, Postdocs, and Early Career Faculty,


If you are presenting at APA 2024, we are thrilled to be able to offer travel awards ($750) to students, postdocs and early career faculty who are presenting alcohol-related research, with a new conference planning grant awarded by NIAAA (R13AA031624; PI: Kelly).  If you are selected,  your presentation will be showcased at an Early Career Investigators Poster Session sponsored by the Society of Addiction Psychology (Division 50), Division 28 (Psychopharmacology and Substance Abuse), and NIAAA.  That means that you will present your work TWICE at APA: during your regularly scheduled time, and additionally at our early career investigator poster session.


I strongly encourage you to apply, especially if you are of an identity or identities who are under-represented (or rather who have been marginalized) within the research community, as defined by NIH. I myself am considered as coming from an under-represented background because I meet two criteria in section C related to my socio-economic status, and strongly encouraged persons who are of these identities to also apply. Please note this information stays confidential and is not tied to your award announcement.


To apply, please complete the online application form – which requires that you upload your acceptance to APA – by April 26th, 2024.
