Conference Travel Awards

Conference Travel Awards 2018-04-22T08:55:44+00:00

Each year the AWTRS awards a number of International and National Travel Awards to support Early Career Researchers attending a wound and/or tissue repair related conference. These awards enable our Early Career Researcher members to attend and present their research to the wound and tissue repair community and to make new connections with others in the field. In 2016 we have available $3000 in total grants. Grants of $1000 will be awarded to AWTRS members for international conferences or $500 for national conferences. Details of the travel awards, eligibility and how to apply can be found in the newsletter and details will appear on here when applications open.
