Awards

For each of these awards, you must submit an abstract prior to applying for an award.

Travel Awards
To support the exploration of RNA therapeutics research to those trainees and early career researchers whom otherwise do not have the resources to travel domestically and/or internationally, we will offer travel awards to graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and young investigators (within their first 3 years). Up to $500 per award will be granted to students, postdocs, and/or young investigators (within their first 3 years). Delegates with accepted abstracts are eligible for this award (awarded on a first come, first serve basis)Only abstracts submitted during the regular timeframe (submitted before February 28, 2020) will be considered.

Family Support Awards
We are excited to announce that we will be helping to supplement the costs related to childcare and/or eldercare responsibilities for early-career researchers attending our symposium. We understand that, in both academia and industry, the years following the completion of a doctoral degree are critical for exposure, recognition, and networking in order to secure or maintain a position. For many scientists, these years also coincide with starting a family, making it difficult to achieve a work-life balance and embrace one’s career objectives. Up to $500 per award will be granted to students, postdocs, and/or young investigators (within their first 3 years). Delegates with accepted abstracts are eligible for this award (awarded on a first come first serve basis).
