Travel Scholarships

We will be offering 10 travel scholarships at approximately $500 each, to participants, to offset the cost of attending the DEAF-ROC Conference. Funds can be used towards airfare, hotel accommodations and other approved travel expenses.

The DEAF-ROC Planning Committee will select scholarship winners based on abstract submission and/or financial need, e.g., undergraduate participant.  To be considered for a travel scholarship, please submit your CV, along with an essay, limited to 1 page, describing your research interests and how attending the DEAF-ROC Conference will help with your career path, as well as an estimate for travel expenses.  

Applicants must apply no later than June 28st, 2019.  Notification of travel awards will be sent by July 3rd, 2019.

NOTE: Due to the NIH program/mechanism funding this conference, travel scholarship applicants must be US Citizens or Permanent Residents in order to be eligible.
