ASM Student and Post Doctoral Fellows Travel Grant

Travel grants are selected by the Program Committee on the basis of the scientific quality of the submitted abstracts. ICAAC travel grants are $500 for North American residents and $750 for International residents. As these grants are meant only to help defray travel costs for attending ICAAC, students may need to obtain additional funding from other sources.
