The training of a new generation of psychiatric academicians is a major objective of the Society of Biological Psychiatry. Participation in professional meetings, where new information is exchanged and contacts are made, can have a critical impact on the career of a developing clinician-scientist.
In recognition of the importance of academic exchange, the Society of Biological Psychiatry (SOBP) annually selects distinguished young scientists to be a part of our Travel Fellowship Award program.
Each travel fellowship award includes:
$1,500 to help defray the travel and living cost to attend the 2013 annual meeting
Waived registration to attend the 2013 meeting
An SOBP member mentor during the meeting
Opportunity to present a poster or oral abstract without an SOBP member sponsor
Waived registration to attend the 2014 and 2015 annual meeting (no financial award)
Recognition events in honor of the Travel Fellowship Award recipeints
To receive the travel fellowship award, you are expected to attend the entire meeting and be present for the recognition events. Previous Travel Fellowship Award recipients are not eligible.
All travel award recipients will be matched with a meeting mentor and will participate in junior investigator activities throughout the meeting.
