The requirements for the International Awards are as follows:

  • Applicants must be from countries outside US and Canada
  • Applicants must have their abstract accepted for presentation at the ASA Annual Meeting.
  • Applicants must be the first (presenting) author on the abstract.

Trainee Travel Awards

  • NIH TraineeTravel Award

To be eligible for a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Travel Award, trainees must be the (first) presenting author on the abstract. Award candidates must plan on attending regardless of the outcome of the Travel Award application process. To be considered for these awards, you may only submit one abstract for award consideration. Submitting more than one abstract will disqualify you.

For the NIH TraineeTravel Award a letter from a research mentor or supervisor must be submitted on your behalf confirming that you are the first and presenting author by November 25, 2019.  Please instruct your mentor to complete this form online:  They will need your submission reference number.  Please note you will not be considered for the NIH Travel Award unless your mentor’s letter of support is received by 5:00 PM EST (10:00 PM GMT) on December 1, 2019.

Awards are considered reimbursement, therefore, trainees must attend the meeting and present their paper before the travel award is presented. Trainees will be notified of the award at least two months prior to the Annual Meeting.

If you have been awarded an International Travel Award or an NIH Trainee Travel Award but are unable to attend the meeting, please inform the ASA by April 15 so that we may present the travel award to another attendee. Send notification to the ASA at Failure to do so will jeopardize your ability to receive future travel awards.
