AAI Travel Awards and Grants

AAI Travel Awards and Grants recognize the promise and bolster the professional development of investigators of all career stages by assisting them with travel to the AAI annual meeting and travel to learn a new technique.  

AAI Travel for Techniques Program

This award reimburses travel expenses to AAI member scientists for travel to another laboratory specifically to learn a new technique. Selection will be based on relevance of the technique to the applicant’s program, inaccessibility of the technique at local institutions, and financial need.
