APS awards 44 minority travel fellowships to the Experimental Biology 2002 meeting

Since 1987, the American Physiological Society (APS) has awarded minority travel fellowships to its annual spring meeting, Experimental Biology. This year 44 students have received these fellowships to facilitate their participation in this gathering, which attracts more than 14,000 scientists annually from dozens of scientific disciplines. The purpose of this fellowship program is to increase the participation of pre- and postdoctoral minority students in the physiological sciences. All awardees receive funds for transportation, meals, lodging and complimentary meeting registration. EB 2002 will be held from April 20-24 in New Orleans.

In addition to receiving the opportunity to attend the meeting, each fellow is paired with an APS member who will serve as a mentor over the course of the conference. Mentors offer guidance on appropriate sessions to attend, introduce fellows to other scientists and provide career advice.

These fellowships are made possible through grants from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS).
