The International Liaison Committee (ILC) has established the International Travel Awards in order to assist trainees and young investigators from countries outside US/Canada to present their work at the ASA Annual Conference.

The requirements for the International Awards are as follows:

  • Applicants must be from countries outside US and Canada
  • Applicants must be the first and presenting author on the abstract.
  • Applicants must have their abstract accepted for presentation at the ASA Annual Conference.

Trainee Travel Awards

  • NIH Trainee Travel Award

The requirements for the NIH Travel Awards are as follows:

  • Trainees must be the first and presenting author on the abstract.
  • Award candidates must plan on attending regardless of the outcome of the Travel Award application process.
  • To be considered for these awards, you may only submit one abstract for award consideration. Submitting more than one abstract will disqualify you.
  • Your research mentor or supervisor must complete the following link on your behalf which includes confirming that you are the first and presenting author as well as a letter of support. Please instruct your mentor to complete this form https://forms.gle/GtRKiYqcHqn19aYt8. They will need your submission reference number.
  • Please note you will not be considered for the NIH Travel Award unless your mentor has completed the link by 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on December 9, 2022.

Awards are considered reimbursement; therefore, trainees must attend the meeting and present their paper before the travel award is presented. Trainees will be notified of the award at least two months prior to the Annual Meeting.

If you have been awarded an International Travel Award or an NIH Trainee Travel Award but are unable to attend the meeting, please inform Taylor O’Sullivan (taylor@veritasamc.com) by March 1, 2023 so that we may present the travel award to another attendee. Failure to do so will jeopardize your ability to receive future travel awards.
