Through FASEB, the Nutrition 2019/FASEB “Diversity Resources for Enrichment, Access & Mentoring” (DREAM) Mentored (formerly called MARC) Travel Award is available for first-time attendees/presenters and presenters who want a mentored meeting experience at the Nutrition 2019 meeting. Undergraduates, graduate/PhD students, medical students/clinical fellows and postdoctoral fellows are eligible. Funding is restricted to USA citizens and Permanent Residents of the USA only. Travel awards are open to all groups including, but not limited to, underrepresented groups. Trainees funded by NIH F, K and T awards are eligible to receive travel support from FASEB.
Awardees cannot accept funding from any other sponsoring organization. Therefore, while awardees may still apply for and compete in any ASN award competition, they cannot receive additional funding from ASN. Though, if an ASN award competition is won, individuals will still have the honor to post these accomplishments on their CV.
