Diversity Fund Student Registration Fee Award

The Animal Behavior Society is strongly committed to increasing the diversity of attendees at the ABS Annual meeting. A limited number of registration fee bursaries are available to aid attendance by students who will increase the participation of racial minorities under-represented in our field. This includes, but is not limited to: minorities from developing nations, minorities living in developed nations, and individuals of Native American, First Nation/First Peoples, Aboriginal or Maori descent. Preference is given to individuals presenting research results. You must be enrolled in a graduate program at the time of application.

Eligibility: Applicants from North America must be enrolled in a graduate program at the time of application and must be members of under-represented minorities who are of African, Asian, or Latin American descent or of Native American heritage. Citizens (graduate students or established professionals) of Latin American countries and non-white citizens of African countries are also encouraged to apply.

The deadline for applications is the last day of abstract submissions: February 28, 2017
