Not currently accepting applications
To promote excellence in undergraduate
research and education, the Genetics
Society of America has established a
travel award to assist undergraduate
members attending a GSA conference and
presenting their research.
Applicants must be GSA members, and can
only use these awards to present
research at a GSA-sponsored meeting.
Applications must be accompanied by two
letters of recommendation, one from the
PI of the laboratory in which the
applicant is conducting research, and
the other from a postdoc, graduate
student, or technician with whom the
applicant works directly or another
professor familiar with the research.
The GSA Education Committee will choose
the award winners.
The GSA Undergraduate Travel Awards have
two rounds of applications per year; one
for GSA conferences occurring between
December 1 and May 30, and another for
GSA conferences held between June 1 and
November 30. Monitor the GSA
e-News, this webpage, and the website
for specific conferences for updates
about application windows.
***NOTE: undergraduates attending
the Drosophila Conference will be applying for the
Victoria Finnerty Undergraduate Travel
Award using the same application process***
