Meritorious Abstract Travel Awards 

ASGCT supports the travel of approximately 150 Associate Members each year through the Meritorious Abstract Travel Award program. Awards are given out based on high abstract scores and recipients will receive a certificate and a travel reimbursement stipend of up to $500 for domestic awardees and $600 for international awardees.

Funding for this program was made possible (in part) by (5 R13 TR 002411 - 02) from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). The views expressed in written program materials or publications and by speakers and moderators do not necessarily reflect the official policies of the Department of Health and Human Services; nor does mention by trade names, commercial practices, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.

Excellence in Research Awards

The top ten to fifteen abstracts submitted by students and fellows will receive an Excellence in Research Award. Recipients will be announced at the end of the George Stamatoyannopoulos plenary lecture and will receive a monetary award of $500 and a special plaque.
