Travel Grants

Two travel funding awards have been made available for this workshop. Each award will allow reimbursement of up to $1200 in eligible travel expenses.

  • To be considered for either award, submit an application form and a first-author abstract by 5pm CDT March 5. Note that the same form can be used as an application to one or both programs; and each awardee will receive only one award. We expect to notify awardees by the end of March.
  • Applicants need be U.S. citizens, legal residents, or attending/working at a U.S. institution on a valid visa; undergraduate or graduate students or within 10 years of their terminal degree; at least 18 years of age; engaged in research relevant to this workshop; and have submitted a first-author abstract for presentation
  • More information and the application can be found here:  https://mepag.jpl.nasa.gov/student.cfm?expand=student.
  • Please note that simply checking the box during abstract submission that you are interested in a student travel award is insufficient – an application must be submitted by the deadline.
