Poster Awards


Four awards will be given for the best poster designs. First ($300) and second ($100) place prizes will be given to the students and postdocs judged to have the best posters.  Both scientific merit and clarity of visual presentation will be taken into account. 


To be eligible, your poster must be displayed the entire length of time (based on odd or even number) from 10:30 am on August 25-August 27 at 3:00 pm.

This competition is only open to students and postdocs. PI's are not eligible.          


FASEB-MARC Travel Awards


The FASEB-MARC Program provides funding for travel awards to support the participation of faculty/mentors, students, post-baccalaureates, postdoctoral fellows, and students from minority institutions and historically black colleges and universities. Underrepresented minority faculty, students, and postdoctoral fellows from majority institutions are also eligible to apply for the travel awards. The travel awards are funded up to $1,850 each for travel-related expenses and for meeting registration.


FASEB MARC travel awards are processed as reimbursements to the award recipients. An award recipient will be required to pay his/her meeting and travel-related expenses first and then request reimbursement from the FASEB MARC Program Office after completion of the meeting/conference.

The deadline for the FASEB MARC travel awards is June 6, 2014.
