Award Competitions and Travel Funding Opportunities

Applications for these award competitions and travel funding opportunities must be submitted during abstract submission. More information about these opportunities will be available in late September 2019.

Nutrition 2020 Family Support Grants

Nutrition 2020 aims to be a family friendly environment and ASN is offering small grants to help off-set caregiving expenses to enable scientists with dependent children or family members to present their research in Seattle. The Nutrition 2020 Family Support Grant is a reimbursable allowance up to a maximum of $750 towards eligible funding scenarios. Provision of these grants is part of a study to assess and evaluate conference attendance feasibility; through this effort we will gather feedback about preferences and barriers to conference attendance.
