Undergraduate Diversity Program Advisor Travel Award
Deadline: October 17
The Undergraduate Diversity Program Award provides the opportunity for promising undergraduate science majors interested in research careers and faculty advisors to attend the Undergraduate Diversity Program March 18-20, 2023, at the Society of Toxicology Annual Meeting. The goal of the program is to recruit students from diverse backgrounds to graduate school in the biomedical sciences, especially toxicology. A limited number of advisors are selected to become more familiar with toxicology as a career option.
In addition to attending meeting sessions, participants in the Undergraduate Diversity Program engage in presentations and case studies across the breadth of toxicology, learn about education and career opportunities in the field, and learn more about the requirements for graduate school and a research career. Students form mentoring relationships with senior toxicologists, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars, meet with academic program and internship directors, and explore careers with toxicologists from universities, government, industry, and other scientific organizations.
Support for transportation, lodging, meals, and registration may be provided to advisor and student awardees.
Selection of advisors is independent of the selection of students. View Undergraduate Diversity Program Student Travel Award for student application information.
