Apply for a PSA Travel Grant 

The PSA Travel Grant is a $400 award (contingent on continued funding) for current UC Davis postdoctoral scholars who need financial assistance to present their work at conferences. Postdoctoral scholars with full support to travel to conferences may apply; however, priority is given to applicants with limited or no funding. Up to 20 awards are available per year, funding is given as a reimbursement, post-conference. Abstract submission, as well as verification and receipt of conference attendance, are required within 45 days of conference attendance to claim the award.
