Awards will be given for the best poster presentations by GSA undergraduate and graduate student members. Judges take both scientific merit and clarity of presentation into account. You must be a GSA student member at the time you submit your abstract and must check the option during abstract submission to enter your poster in the competition. You must also be the first and presenting author on the abstract to be eligible for an award.
Winners will be announced during the conference. PIs and postdocs who are GSA members can indicate during registration if they would like to help with judging.
To promote excellence in undergraduate research and education, the Genetics Society of America (GSA) established the Undergraduate Travel Awards, which support registration costs for undergraduate members who are presenting at a GSA conference. The application deadline is February 3, 2021.
Application Deadline: March 25, 2021
Funds are available to support the participation of postdocs and students. Presenting authors are given first priority when determining awards. Describe your need in the online award application, which will be available in January 2021.
