A minimum of six Registration Awards will be sponsored by the International Society for Transgenic Technologies for ISTT members wishing to attend the 12th Transgenic Technologies (TT2014) meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK, on 6-8 October 2014. Selected applicants will be awarded funding to cover registration fees plus attendance at all social events. However, the award does not cover travel expenses, hotel accommodation or attendance at pre-meeting events.
Applicants who are not yet members of the ISTT may join the ISTT and simultaneously submit their Registration Award application. Only those applications from members who have paid their current (2014) annual fees will be considered.
Applicants must first register for the TT2014 meeting and select, as a payment method, “Application for Registration Awards.” The ISTT will send the registration fee of those selected directly to the TT2014 meeting organizer.
Applications and additional required documents (see below) should be sent, along with the meeting registration confirmation, to the official ISTT email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, by June 30, 2014.
Additional documentation required:
a) Applicant’s CV
b) For ordinary members, a letter from the applicant describing how he/she will benefit from attending the TT meeting
c) For technician/student members, a letter of support from the applicant’s PI or supervisor stating how attendance will benefit the applicant’s career.
Registration Awards will be selected by a subset of ISTT Council members, with preference given to:
1) Student/Technician ISTT Members
2) ISTT Members submitting an abstract for presentation as a poster/short-oral communication at the TT meeting
3) Any other ISTT Member
Awards to six selected applicants will be announced by July 15, 2014 and awardees will receive a diploma marking the event at the end of the TT2014 Meeting.
