KAWSE ADVANCE Postdoctoral Travel Award applications due Oct. 31
The K-State Office for the Advancement of Women in Science and Engineering, or KAWSE, is accepting applications for the fall 2021 ADVANCE Postdoctoral Researcher Travel Funds Award.
The purpose of the award is to enhance the postdoctoral researcher experience and enrich the lives of women in STEM disciplines by providing funds for travel to a professional conference.
Factors that enhance the postdoctoral researcher experience could include the purpose of the meeting and the extent to which postdoctoral researchers will participate in informal and formal networking opportunities.
Factors that lead to enriching the lives of women in STEM disciplines could include participating in professional development workshops relevant to gender inequality and inequity. Up to $500 will be provided by the KAWSE office toward the expenses associated with a presentation at a professional conference.
The deadline for the submission of proposals is Oct. 31 for travel scheduled January through December 2022.
Preference will be given to first-time applicants and the number of awards is contingent on funding.
The Request for Proposals provides further details on eligibility, the application process/timeline and any additional requirements of the award winner(s).
