AWIS Educational Awards for travel for professional development

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.
