APS awards $63,000 in travel fellowships to minority scientists

BETHESDA, Md. The American Physiological Society (APS) has awarded 42 minority travel fellowships to the 2005 International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS) Congress. Students from across the U.S. and Puerto Rico received these fellowships to facilitate their participation in IUPS 2005 (held in conjunction with Experimental Biology 2005), which will attract more than 16,000 scientists 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. IUPS 2005 will be held from March 31 April 5 in San Diego, Ca.

In addition to attending the meeting, each fellow is paired with an APS member who will serve as a mentor throughout 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).
