The deadline for the IS3NA Travel Awards application is May 4th, 2020.

The winners of the Travel Awards will be directly contacted by e-mail and will have to confirm the award acceptance. As a general rule, only one application from the same lab will be accepted; should supervisors send more than one recommendation letter, they will have to clearly rank the applicants.
