SOT is proud to offer support to outstanding graduate students to fund their travel to the 2022 SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo. The application period for one such opportunity, Graduate Student Travel Support, is open now. Graduate students who will be PhD candidates in toxicology at the time of the 2022 SOT Annual Meeting—March 27–31, 2022—are eligible to apply for Graduate Student Travel Support to fund travel to the meeting in San Diego, California.

The application deadline for this travel support is October 9, 2021, and interested students may apply via the SOT Annual Meeting website.


To qualify for travel support, applicants must be presenting during a Platform or Poster Session during the SOT Annual Meeting; thus, abstract acceptance is a requirement for this award. Please note that although the deadline to submit an abstract for the Annual Meeting is October 15, the deadline to apply for this award is October 9. Applicants also must be Student members of SOT or have a membership application pending at the time of applying for the travel support. Doctoral candidates delivering a platform or poster presentation during the 2022 Annual Meeting who are not yet Student members of the Society should apply for membership by September 30, 2021.

Those accepted for Student membership in the Society before the end of 2021 will qualify for the Student member rate during the Annual Meeting early-bird registration period, which ends January 28, 2022. Membership applications should be submitted early to ensure eligibility for both Graduate Student Travel Support and the discounted Annual Meeting registration rate.

Application Review Process

Recipients are selected by a randomized process, giving priority to students most senior in graduate school, and individuals who have previously received this funding are not eligible to receive the award again. The SOT Awards Committee determines funding amounts for this award each year.

Full instructions on applying for Graduate Student Travel Support are available on the award web page. Please direct any questions to SOT Headquarters.
