Pfizer SOT Undergraduate Student Travel Awards recognize outstanding undergraduates who have not yet received their bachelor's degrees and are presenting research at the Annual Meeting. The goal of the award is to foster interest in graduate studies in the field of toxicology. These awards are provided by Pfizer, Inc. and SOT. Approximately fourteen awards will be made. Awardees will be selected based on the quality of the submitted poster abstract, personal statement, academic record, and the advisor’s supporting recommendation. Awardees receive travel support including lodging and per diem and complimentary meeting registration.
