Types of Mentored Travel Awards Available
Mentored travel/meeting registration awards are processed as reimbursements to the award recipients. In most instances, an award recipient will be required to pay his/her meeting- and travel-related expenses first, and then request reimbursement from the FASEB Diversity Resources Program Office after completion of the meeting/conference. Please be sure to review Eligibility and Requirements before applying.
