The Society of Toxicology (SOT) is pleased to provide travel support for the 2015 Annual Meeting to graduate students who are PhD candidates in toxicology at the time of the Annual Meeting, March 22–26, 2015. Graduate students may apply for this travel support by October 9, 2014 via the Awards and Fellowships section of the SOT website.

Applicants must be presenting platform talks or posters at the Annual Meeting and be Student members of SOT or have a membership application pending at the time of application for the travel support. Doctoral candidates presenting a platform talk or poster at the 2015 Annual Meeting, who are not yet Student members of the Society, should apply for membership by September 1, 2014.

Those accepted for Student membership in the Society during the autumn of 2014 will qualify for the Early Bird Registration discounted rates for the Annual Meeting as a Student member. So submit your membership applications early to be eligible for both the SOT Graduate Student Travel Support as well as the Early Bird Registration for the Annual Meeting. Recipients are selected by a randomized process giving priority to students with the most seniority in graduate school. Funding amounts for this award are determined annually by the SOT Awards Committee. Applicants may only receive this funding once.
