This year IRNSC is pleased to announce two travel awards of $500 each. These awards are offered to one student and one postdoctoral research fellow who will be presenting their research paper at SfN in October 2019 in Chicago. Iranian neuroscience graduate students and postdocs who have submitted an abstract for oral or poster presentation and will be attending the 2019 SfN annual meeting, are eligible to apply for these awards.
To be considered for the awards, applicants should be in good standing for his/her membership dues (Link). Applicants should provide a short CV (maximum 2 pages) along with a one-page summary of their research. The CV should provide information about the applicant’s academic background, publications, honors and awards, teaching experiences and any outreach or leadership abilities, plus a copy of the original abstract submitted for the SfN meeting along with the corresponding reference number, and two letters of reference all merged into a single PDF file. The research summary should be written in lay language so it is understandable to our selection committee members with a wide range of different academic backgrounds.
The applications should be sent to IRNSC’s email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday September 30th. All eligible applications will be processed and reviewed by IRNSC’s review committee, and award recipients will be announced by the second week of October. These awards will be officially presented at the IRNSC social event.
