Diversity Fund Student Registration Fee Award

The Animal Behavior Society is strongly committed to increasing the diversity of attendees at the ABS Annual meeting and within its membership. 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 students of Black, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, American Indian/First Nation, Aboriginal or Maori heritage. If funds are available, the bursaries may be extended to help defray costs of African, Asian, Central American, South American or Mexican researchers who are not students. Preference is given to individuals presenting research results.
Eligibility: Student applicants from North America must be enrolled in a graduate program at the time of application and must be members of under-represented minorities groups. Researchers from Africa, Asia, Central America, South American or Mexico (graduate students or established professionals) are also encouraged to apply.

You may apply through the abstract submission system, by indicating you would like to be considered for this Award in Step 4.

Application Deadline: April 10, 2020.
