This month we are featuring our Early-Career Investigator Travel Award initiative that aims to increase the success of early-career investigators from underrepresented backgrounds at the assistant professor or government, non-profit, etc., scientist equivalent level. ECITAs provide $1,200 to help defray conference expenses, including registration, ground/air transportation, and lodging for in-person attendance at a Keystone Symposia conference, where emerging researchers benefit from critical opportunities to:
establish new collaborations
gain exposure for their research
network informally with colleagues
meet with prospective postdoctoral candidates
invaluable career-advancement opportunities
We are now accepting ECITAs applications for 2022 conferences!
Stay tuned! The window to apply for our 2023 conferences will open soon. Please continue to monitor the ECITA application site for updates.
