Shirley Chan Student Travel Grants

APS March Meeting 2022


Student must be the first author of contributed papers (talks or posters) in sessions sponsored by DBIO at the March Meeting. Applicants will be chosen on the basis of the quality of their work as evidenced by the abstract of the paper, a letter of support from their thesis advisor and the travel distances. The committee should take into account the minority status of the applicant.

Both student and advisor, domestic or foreign, must be members of DBIO, not just of the APS. New members can sign up and are encouraged to do so before Dec. 10 for verification purposes (students get their first two Division memberships free, otherwise it is only $10 for APS members to also become DBIO members!).

Please use this application form. No more than 2 students from one advisor may apply. Submit completed application to:

The deadline to apply is December 10, 2021.

Travel Award committee will determine the winners by January 1.
