CBN and ACSFN Sponsor
Undergraduate Student Travel Awards to Society for
Neuroscience Meeting in Atlanta in October 2006
The purpose of this award, jointly sponsored by
the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience and the Atlanta
Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience, is to
allow students at Atlanta, Georgia area universities
to gain exposure to the world of neuroscience research
at the world's largest annual gathering of neuroscientists.
Students who attend will learn more about career
opportunities in neuroscience and can make valuable
contacts in the field and among their fellow students
in the Atlanta area.
Up to 40 undergraduate students from Atlanta
area colleges and universities will be awarded $200
each to cover registration and other expenses to
attend the meeting. Students do not have to
be actively engaged in research or presenting something
at the SFN meeting to apply. If a student is
already planning to attend and present at the meeting,
they can still apply for this award. We mainly
want to support students who are very interested
in neuroscience as a potential career.
The application process is simple. Students
must submit only 3 things:
- a completed Award
- a typed, double-spaced personal statement, and
- a completed SFN
Registration Form (leave payment info blank
on this form). The deadline is Friday,
September 8, 2006. Awardees will be notified
no later than Friday, September 22, 2006.
