Minority Travel Grant

In an effort to increase the participation of underrepresented minority (URM) groups in microbiology related fields, ASM will offer ASM General Meeting Minority Travel Grants to help defray expenses associated with travel to asm2014. Postdoctoral scholars, faculty and advanced graduate students from URM groups, and faculty from Minority Serving Institutions and Community Colleges who have demonstrated their interest in mentoring URM trainees in the microbiological sciences will be eligible to receive up to $1,500. Funding for this program is pending.
