Travel Awards for Post-doc and Graduate Trainees


In the tradition of past workshops, the organizers of IHW 2016 were pleased to announce the availability of funds to support a number of travel awards to help offset meeting costs for postdoctoral and graduate trainees to attend the 2016 meeting in Madison.


These awards provide hotel accommodations for the selected individuals. Awardees were selected based primarily on the scientific merit of their abstract, but also in an attempt to increase all aspects of the diversity of postdocs, students and trainees attending the meeting. We received over a hundred applications and the program committee was pleased to announce the following awardees:
