Diversity Fellowship Announcement

Please feel free to share this announcement with your lab members and colleagues who may know someone eligible for this award.

ASNR is pleased to announce the availability of a newly expanded Diversity Travel Fellowship Program.

This Fellowship will now support up to three underrepresented individuals and will provide meeting travel support in the amount of $1,000 per year, for three consecutive years. The award will also include complimentary meeting registration for all three award years. During the last year of the fellowship, each Diversity Fellow will be required to serve as a mentor to a first-year awardee. This format is designed to provide a sustained opportunity for our Diversity Fellows to become more fully immersed in the meeting and establish long-term, meaningful relationships within ASNR. 

Please note: since the Annual Meeting will be virtual in April 2021, travel support will not be given this year, but will be given in 2022 and 2023, assuming these meetings will take place in person. However, 2021 Diversity Fellows will be granted complimentary registration to the virtual meeting.

Groups underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences are defined by the NIH as people with disabilities and underrepresented racial and ethnic groups such as blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaskan Natives, and Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders.

Veterans and those with disabilities from birth, trauma, or disease are also eligible. Individuals with disabilities are defined as those with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.  Please upload proof that the disability is documented in your training or employment record OR a statement on how the disability substantially limits one or more major life activities and how the disability has been accommodated by your school or place of employment.

Only applications from individuals meeting these criteria will be considered for the Diversity Fellowship.

Applicants need not be ASNR members, although member applicants will be considered first.

Postdocs, residents, and students are eligible for the fellowship. Awardees will be selected according to their academic background, experience, and research interests.

IF YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR THIS GRANT, PLEASE BE SO KIND AS TO FORWARD IT ON TO SOMEONE WHO IS!

HOW TO APPLY
Applicants are required to submit a complete application, curriculum vitae and two letters of recommendation. Documents are to be uploaded on the application form.

Submissions must be received by March 15, 2021.

Thank you and “see” you at the 2021 virtual Annual Meeting!
