The Association of Women in Science (AWIS) has announced the 2012 AWIS Educational Awards to support travel for professional development, broadly defined. We particularly wish to encourage early-career scientists. Individuals may request funding to attend a conference, to acquire specialized training, or to pursue professional development in other ways that take them from home.
Due date: All materials, including the Letter of Recommendation, must be submitted by December 31, 2011 for awards that will be available in March of 2012. Recipients will be notified via e-mail by February 28, 2012 (Please note: there will be a second awards cycle in 2012, so check back at a later date for the next due date and details on how you can apply.)
Award amount: Awards are $1,000 to $3,000. The maximum to be awarded is $3,000.
