The organization will have several scholarships available for a) young researchers from emerging countries and b) young underrepresented minority and disabled investigators in the U.S.A.

The scholarship consists of 2 nights complimentary housing at the conference headquarter's hotel and free registration.

Scholarships will only be provided to authors of an accepted abstract. Please indicate in the abstract submission form whether you wish to apply for a scholarship. There are no separate scholarship application forms.

We expect to send out scholarship selection outcome notifications in February 2017. As the submission deadline is 31 January, this could take up to 4 weeks, but we will do our best to handle the reviews as quickly as possible.
