FASEB - MARC Travel Awards
The FASEB Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) travel awards enable underrepresented graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty members in the biomedical and behavioral sciences to participate in Science Research Conferences*. The program was previously referred to as the Minority Access to Research Careers. Our aim is to strengthen and expand the research training opportunities for trainees and faculty members in academic/research from underrepresented groups. We encourage all attendees from qualified underrepresented groups to visit FASEB-SRC MARC for more information on award eligibility and requirements.

* SRCs held at non-US locations are not eligible for MARC Travel Awards.
