Apply for Support

The ICRA 2012 organizers are pleased to announce that there will be a few travel awards available to partially support the cost of attending the ICRA 2012 conference. The number and amount of these awards will depend on a pending travel grant application. In the meanwhile, the Travel Awards Committee solicits applications for such awards from prospective participants. These awards will primarily be supporting students and postdoctoral fellows from the USA. However, a very limited number awards will be available to support participants from the international community. Applicants from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply for these awards. The application deadline is March 2, 2012.
